Kevin Huang (KevinH) is a controls engineer in Cambridge, MA. He was an active YWP member during his middle and high school years in Burlington, VT, submitting beautiful landscape and experimental photos for publication, and covering YWP events as an event photographer. Kevin likes to travel and practice photography in his free time, and he has recently started exploring film photography. This is Kevin's first year with YWP as an alumni advisor.
Zinnia Hansen (Yellow Sweater) is a junior at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, double majoring in Classics and History. Zinnia was a high school poet seeking an online writing community when she happily found YWP and dove in with her own writing and helpful comments for others on the site. She was named youth poet laureate of Seattle in 2021-22 and published her first book of poetry, "Spikenard," in May 2022. Fun fact: In December 2022, Zinnia opened for the legendary Patti Smith at a Seattle Arts & Lectures event with her poem “Cubism,” which she had posted on her YWP blog. This is Zinnia's second year as an alumni advisor.
