Alexandra Contreras-Montesano is a senior and a writer at Burlington High School in Burlington, VT. She loves all writing and art, but favors poetry and photography. Her poetry is inspired by her identity and experiences as a Mexican-American living in a state with little diversity. In her spare time Alexandra enjoys horseback riding and reading avidly. She supports social justice issues and often uses her writing as a platform to enact or inspire change in areas that need it. Alexandra thinks of writing as a tool that can be used to fix things that are broken in the world, and she hopes to do a lot of fixing.
