Kelly Luc

Tokyo, Japan

Brown University '17
Major in Public Health and Visual Arts

Kelly Luc is enamored by bullet journals, blue beaches, and blasé overuses of alliteration. Most days, she is busy having strong opinions about boba and googling* words in an attempt to appear clever. Despite her fascinating flair for mispronunciation, Kelly enjoys waxing psuedo-poetics and bequeathing pet names and other hypocorisms*. Kelly is filled with a vibrant (and verbose) love of Tokyo, and looks forward to valiantly teaching English to tots of many ages.

Stephanie Martinez

Penang, Malaysia

Macalester College '17
Major in Geography
Hometown: Locust Grove, VA

Coming from a town in rural Virginia where there is said to be more cows than people, Stephanie is known for talking to animals. The fact that she's a vegetarian, and goes to a small liberal arts school in Minnesota may have also influenced her quirky habit of naming objects that she owns. When she's not posting about cute puppy videos, or rambling about her current anime series that she is watching, Stephanie enjoys listening to live music, dancing, and making art with her close friends.
