Karen hails from Boston, but she now hails to the University of Michigan, where she is a freshman pursuing degrees in English, psychology, and secondary education. When she's not busy daydreaming or writing, you can find her at the nearest gelateria or Panera, in discussion about Harry Potter, good films, good art, and perhaps the meaning of life. She doesn't always know where she's going, but you can follow her here: http://twitter.com/k_hua http://medium.com/@k_hua The journey will be fun nonetheless--and that's a promise.
