Caroline Lin is a second-year mentee at Girls Write Now and a first-year member of the Youth Board. Although she mostly focuses on poetry and short stories, she explores other genres thanks to Girls Write Now workshops and her mentor, Ashley Balavender. Her pieces normally revolve around her personal experiences and mixed heritage. She has received a gold medal from Scholastic for a Brazil-based short story and a silver medal for her writing portfolio. As she begins college in the fall, she is excited to continue developing as a digital media enthusiast, an artist, and a writer.
