  • Interview with Write the World - Winter 2017 

    • "I actually visited Egypt during my sixth grade year. After touring the temple in Luxor, I became really interested in the hieroglyph “ankh,” which symbolizes life and eternity. There are so many aspects about Egypt—that go beyond photographs and documentaries about the pyramids and the Nile—that I became aware of only after visiting the country. I wanted to convey this revelation through 'Ankh'." (Write the World

  • Review of "Ankh" in Write the World - Winter 2017 

    • "This is a piece that delivers on many levels. It’s a travel guide of Egypt, and the journey of a character. I see what the narrator sees because Soo Young’s descriptions are concrete and concise. I can imagine the high-heeled woman taking photographs in the sand dunes. I can feel the dusty smooth surface of the walls...And the themes of this piece are subtly and confidently conveyed. History is a huge place. But the beauty of this piece is that we’re taken into the small moments of it." (Guest Judge, YA Author Cath Crowley) 

  • Interview with Aerie International - Spring 2017

    • "As a student, there’s only so much that I can do to partake in protests against political corruption and I may not be physically involved in them. But I am an active participant in another sense--I try to create avenues in my own way, such as through my creative and journalistic writing. There are different ways of thinking about participation, and mine is more discursive in nature." (Aerie International
