Jasmine Cui is 18 years old and majoring in Political Science, Economics, and Chemistry. Jasmine found the courage to pursue writing when she was 17. Since then, her work has been nationally recognized by the Gedenk Foundation and the Scholastic Awards. She has been twice nominated for Bettering American Poetry in addition to Best New Poets. She is the Founder of The Ellis Review.
She is not a mentee, not a Foyle Young Poet, not a Presidential Scholar (and this is not to say you can't be those things), but she is still every bit a writer. And you are too. @notamathlete

Nicolás López is a 22-year-old Colombian writer who just finished majoring in literature at Los Andes University where he worked at Perifrasis, Revista de Literatura, Teoría y Crítica. He has received prizes for his poetry and short fiction from the Autonomous University at Cali.
Since he can remember, he developed a deep and inexplicable love for the English language, to read and think in it. He aspires to articulate a voice that reconciles sound and image while still saying something slightly significant about our current chaos. He tweets @njlopez_
