About Me

Author: Grace Ericsson

I’m a student and artist entering my second year of university. I’m majoring in International Affairs and Political Science, and minoring in Mandarin Chinese and Asian Studies. When not at university, my German Shepherd Dog, Nellie, is always by my side. I enjoy reading, drawing, musical theater, video editing, K-Pop and animation.
