Kiyoko Reidy has been writing since she wrote her ﬁrst rhyming poem about cats at the age of six. She is ﬁnally pursuing her passion for writing with a creative writing major, and is extremely excited to meet people who don’t ask the question, “So, what are you going to do with that?” She is initially from Knoxville, Tennessee, and misses the Appalachian mountains but loves Wisconsin winters. She loves a good argument, baking, and being consistently caffeinated.
