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 is a giant pile of nerd who tends to freak out about linguistic prescriptivism, gender roles, and discrimination against the mentally ill. She's currently pursuing a degree in Ethics on the lovely Emerald Isle, writing at taikonenfea.wordpress.com, and climbing things whenever possible.
Ali Marie is a 21-year-old Masters of Education student, and a self-proclaimed museum geek. Her skepticism and interest in how the world around her works began as a young child, who wouldn’t stop asking “why?” Now, her goal in life is to spread science, skepticism, critical thinking, and rationality to everyone willing to learn. You can find Ali on Twitter, @ascientifica, and on Google+.
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.
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"
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).
Hi, I'm an atheist named Christian. I'm a science-loving college student at the University of Rochester, currently focusing on Neuroscience. When I'm not engaged in academics, I'm almost certainly being lazy and watching shows/movies on my laptop or reading (on a good day). I have an undying admiration for Penn Jillette and Carl Sagan, which I indulge in by rewatching Bullshit! and Cosmos over and over again. My sibling interest to scientific skepticism is most definitely civil liberties, and I am constantly consolidating those interests in my head somehow. Talk to me!
Elizabeth is a professional belly dancer, a flaky computer scientist, and a returned Peace Corps volunteer. She lives in Georgia (the state of the U.S., not the country) but is nonetheless somehow not a combination of stereotypes from Gone with the Wind and Deliverance. Her personal blog is Coffeefied. Operafied. Fluffified. Beglittered.
