Astrid Parrish-Come

Astrid is a returning Sierra College student majoring in Psychology. She has been passionate about writing since she was a young girl spending most of her free time indoors reading and creating stories of her own, and fell in love with poetry in her early teens after discovering the spoken word of Andrea Gibson. Her current favorite writer is Akwaeke Emezi.

Astrid believes literature and poetry have the ability to change the world, and she is passionate about raising the voices of the traditionally unheard.
