Emma Holland

Emma Holland, senior, has had a passion for writing ever since she was a little girl. Her favorite pastime was reading, so she wanted to write stories that would make others fall in love with books the way she did. Emma loves writing because she enjoys creating worlds as well as hidden meanings in each of her pieces. She is often inspired by her experiences with life around her— anything that connects to her deeply. She relies on the support of her loved ones in everything she does. She aspires to inspire other young readers and writers to put pen to paper and compose a story of their own. Emma’s favorite book series is Harry Potter.

I wanted to address the issue of self-harm in this piece. This struggle affects those around us and it is not always visible to the human eye. I cut rips, tearing the sleeves to symbolize […]
