Featured Student Writer: Priscilla Hardianto

unnamed-1Born in Fairfax, Virginia, Priscilla Hardianto now attends The Bishop’s School in the balmy coastal town of La Jolla, California. Her essay, “Playgrounds” was selected as a Top Ten Winner in our Spring 2015 national essay contest.

Priscilla has many passions, including reading and writing creative works. Her poem, “Frogs” won her the Molly Martinek award at her school, and she has contributed various articles to the Daily Urinal, a student-run daily newspaper. She has also published poetry, prose, and photography in two more of her school’s annual art and writing publications, Dragonwings and Fault Lines. In addition to this, Priscilla enjoys learning about global issues. Because of this, she was invited to be a journalist, photo editor, and copy editor for the WorldLink Youth Town Meeting for San Diego and Tijuana students. Her favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Haruki Murakami, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, as Priscilla admires and aspires to their unique storytelling styles and ability to immerse their readers in their tales.

Aside from writing, Priscilla is especially fond of animals and volunteers in the Helen Woodward Animal Center. She’s also a musician who plays violin for the non-profit organization Fanfaire Foundation. As hobbies, Priscilla also enjoys drinking tea, cooking, travelling, fashion, and photography. She runs a photo blog for her school called Faces of Bishop’s inspired by Humans of New York. Priscilla is humbled to be recognized by Creative Communication, and she would like to take this opportunity thank her English teacher, Ms. Laury Isenberg, for encouraging her to “let free” and be “self-reflective” when writing.
