In this episode, you’ll hear Mentor Tracy Morin, a magazine writer and editor, talk with Mentee Ava Fung, a high schooler from New York City, about her humorous non-fiction piece, “Toothache.”
Mentee Ava Fung is still kicking it. Born and raised in New York, she has developed the strength of your average subway rat and like the rat she is always looking to find the best eats, shuffling quickly past slow walkers, and scaring people with a simple glance. Fung writes for her school newspaper The Spectator, does stand-up comedy, runs track, and enjoys cooking. Priding herself on her determination, she has a fortune cookie wrapper in her phone that reads "You didn't come this far to only come this far." She has been published by Teen Ink.
