Jodi Velez
Drew UniversityBelleville, NJ
She was the first completed creation from the egg that originated from Peru, accompanied by the other half from the island of Puerto Rico on April 11, 2005. Her dark brown curls would dance when she lifted her black pen, eagerly scribbling her prose onto her cerulean notebook. If you let the pages run through your fingers, she wrote about the inequality towards women, discrimination towards people of color, and mental health. From the day she wrote in preschool, Jodi Velez did not end this sudden passion. She scoured for inspiration in unlikely locations, yearning to use that for her future published manuscript.
