Read Eileen’s Poetry

 

Eileen Huang is a sophomore at High Technology High School in Lincroft, New Jersey. While studying abroad in Beijing for a year, Eileen became interested in the ancient Chinese poems of Li Bai and Du Fu. She loves to write narrative poems describing normal, conventional experiences using descriptive language. In addition to poetry, she is interested in both journalism and art. As a student in a STEM high school, she can often be found reading authors that range from Vonnegut to Plath or studying the phases of mitosis. Although she is still fairly new to poetry, Eileen believes that it is a powerful and liberating form of creative expression, and she strives to write a new poem every day.
