April Wang, Staff Writer

April is a sophomore and a staff writer for El Estoque. In her free time, she likes to draw or read, and has a list of recommended books that is getting longer by the day no matter how fast she reads. She is also mildly obsessed with K-Pop and promises that it is a perfectly healthy obsession.
