Melody Xu, 14 years old, is a freshman at Naperville Central High School. When she was three, she fell in love with classical music, so since then, she has devoted herself to the musical world, and currently, she is studying piano under Ms. Sueanne Metz. She also loves to read books, especially fantasy and science fiction genres, as well as many classics, like To Kill A Mockingbird and Pride and Prejudice. When she writes, she tries to gather all of her favorite parts of each book that she has read and weave them into her own story, her own style. She hopes that all of the submitted works have brought our world hope during the pandemic.
