Who’s Who on Teen Skepchick
Vy is a recent graduate working in a neuroscience lab with children and monkeys. She likes sewing, knitting, lifting weights, and reading in her free time. Especially reading about science!
Olivia recently graduated with a degree in philosophy and religion and is now after another one in linguistics! She first became interested in skepticism and atheism after attending Catholic school for 13 years and realizing that none of it made any sense. Olivia's particular interests center around women's rights, religion as it plays a role in people's everyday lives, and politics in relation to atheist and skeptic issues. Olivia also blogs at http://taikonenfea.wordpress.com/
Melanie is a freelance editor and writer who just moved to a small town outside Minneapolis with her husband and two young kids. When not counting how often the words "pride," "liberty," and "freedom" are used in local business, road, and pet names, she spends her time wrangling commas, making colon jokes, and raising her two kids to be critical thinkers. She is the managing editor of Skepchick Events, a Grounded Parents admin, and a Skepchick contributor. You can find her on Twitter as @MelMall, on Facebook, and on Google+
I'm Beccy, I'm 18, and I love to write. I'm off to study English Literature at Edinburgh University because I've been nurturing an undying love of books since childhood. My interests involve blogging, podcasts, cinema, Game of Thrones, mid century vintage and copious amounts of tea.
Kate is an outspoken atheist, feminist, demisexual, stigma-busting student in Chicago studying psychology and human development. She juggles occasionally, would knit you something warm if she knew you, and reads anything she can get her hands on. She was raised believing alternative medicine worked, and now spends her time making skeptical faces at it. You can find her on Twitter at @donovanable
Xe'nedra is a pre-teen free thinker who can often be found with her nose in a book. She is an expert at rolling her eyes and making her parents sigh in exasperation. Skateboarding and golf is on her list of sporting activities and she would love to study Forensics or Medicine (which is better than being Gwen Stefani which was her aspiration at age 3). She also blogs as "The Sceptic Kid"
Lux is a female genderqueer weirdo, writing from Kansas. They happily identify as a militant atheist(+), feminist and liberal. Their time is consumed with Doctor Who, reading, and playing WoW with a cat on their lap. If you're lucky, you might catch them smithing jewellery or cleaning something.
Eddy is an amateur writer, an even more amateurish musician and the Internet's 3600th favourite redcoat. He writes a mostly skeptical daily blog at jengajam.wordpress.com to quell the voices in his head, writes album reviews for www.alterthepress.com to put voices in his head and writes novels that he hopes to put voices in other people's heads. He is currently studying Biological Sciences at Nottingham Trent University, planning to specialise in Ecology.
Skeptical Sasquatch is an amateur tabloid photographer and filmmaker, beauty expert, and jetsetter (for security purposes). Tired of all the lies spread about him by cryptoloonologists and various crackpots, he joined Teen Skepchick to speak for himself about the skeptical issues of the day and to add species diversity. You can find him on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Skeptisquatch (@skeptisquatch) and on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/SkepticalSasquatch).
Zhanpei is virtually unpronounceable by most of the English-speaking world (as substitute teachers can attest), so you can call her PeiPei (pronounced like "pay") or just Pei. She's a 16-year-old high school junior and is way into science, cooking, art, and high fantasy literature.
