Junior Yasmine Chang spends her time writing stories and creating new fantasy worlds, drawing on her love of reading.

Chang enjoys fantasy novels. Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and The Mortal Instruments are a few from which Chang derives inspiration. "I can see how other writers structure their work, and I can implement some of those strategies into my own writing," Chang said.

Chang began writing fantasy stories in 6th grade after reading those written by friends. "After I read them, I was inspired to write my own," she said, but she is "not ready to publicize them" yet.

The stories are original, but Chang takes some aspects of the fantasy world from other books. She also enjoys taking humor from television because she appreciates the jokes.

In the future however, Chang hopes to explore different kinds of writing, not just creative. “I don’t want to restrict myself to just 1 type of writing. That’s why I’m in journalism, I’m excited to expand my writing skills.” 

This is currently Chang’s 3rd year in journalism.
