Jasmine Ilyas-Grande is a high school senior in the process of applying to college. Outside of school, you can find her at the park sipping tea out of a straw while reading a collection of poetry, a romantic novel, or reading about the corners of the universe. On the weekends you can find her watching any comedic show. As a physics lover, she is interested in writing mathematical formulas and theoretical equations. She also enjoys writing poetry and exploring magical realism. She is happiest when she's combining her passion for physics with writing. Publications: Johns Hopkins; youth film arts; L.A.

Through a collaboration of my growing years, I unwrap the intimate collection of stories I have sorted through in my ups and downs, my memories, reflections, and curiosity. These stories were made to hold on to some feelings that I wanted to cherish, and most were written out of the urge of wanting to relieve a feeling I felt at that time. You can find a variety of topics within my stories, and within each, you will experience a different roller coaster ride.
