A recent graduate from West High School, Isabella Santana (she/her) hopes that her words can change the world. Isabella has received recognition for her writing on a local, state, and national level. She recently received the title of Los Angeles Youth Poet Ambassador, one of ten in Los Angeles County. In January of 2022, she received a copy of a poetry anthology, Expressions, published by the American Library of Poetry. The anthology featured one of her poems, Snow White and Her Apple Trip. She felt elated when she saw her poem in print, and hopes to recreate that feeling of euphoria with a book of her own soon. She thanks her teachers and family for never giving up on her inner child, who loves writing…forever and always.
