    Felicia Van Regteren Altena

    Head of Entitled

    Felicia  is a half-Dutch, half-Cuban girl studying International Relations and Development Studies at SOAS. Other than constantly wondering which culture she is more part of, she loves exploring new cultures, binging on documentaries about the civil rights movements of the past, travelling, good food and shopping (excessively).

  • Lena Yeo

    Lena Yeo
    Chief Editor

    Lena is a final year law student at the University of Warwick. She made childhood
    friends with introspection and now questions its reconcilability with the realities of
    her profession. Quoting Gailman, she takes the stance that one should not be
    shielded from ‘dark things’. Amidst all the darkness however, you’ll likely find her
    to be (un)abashedly spirited and always up for good fun. 

  • Allison Law

    Allison Law
    Chief Editor

    Allison may be a law student by day, but at the core she loves sentimentality, flights of fancy and words strung together so powerfully yet effortlessly it move mind and matter. She cares deeply about issues of social justice and politics, but would also really appreciate candid nerdy conversations about the Marvel universe and Japanese pop culture.

  • Jodie Sheehan
    Writer

    Jodie Sheehan is a 19-year-old second year student at the University of York. As a student of English Literature, books are her life; she’s always reading, or writing about what she’s reading. Outside the book world, she’s loves adventure in the real world. Travelling and seeing new things are what make her tick and spurs her on, from small trips to Edinburgh Fringe, to never-ending treks up Machu Picchu, Jodie is on a quest to see the world – and get as much of it as possible down on paper on the way. For her, documenting the experience is all part of the fun: she strives to capture each moment in a flurry of photography and flowery language.

  • Christie Cheng
    Writer

    Having completed her undergraduate in English Literature at the National University of Singapore, Christie worked at the National Arts Council, Singapore doing many literary things, and many government things. She is currently based in London where she is doing her MA in Cultural Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies. Her research interests lie in non-Eurocentric theoretical discourses and applying these paradigms onto literary and filmic texts in making sense of contemporary societies, specifically those in Southeast Asia. She much rather learn about cultures through literature, film, art and traveling, than historical and anthropological accounts. But let’s be real, who doesn’t?

  • Masie Le Masurier
    Writer

    Maisie is a first year English Literature student at the University of York. Her love of literature is rooted in the knowledge that, in the right hands, it can be an agent of social change – serving as a means to raise awareness, highlight injustice and empower the people. It can bring, to public attention, the plight of society’s misunderstood or marginalised. As a member of the developed world, Maisie believes she has a duty to lend her voice to those in need of one. As such, in 2013, she became a Young Ambassador for the Global Campaign for Education, with schooling something she considers a powerful deterrent for conflict and poverty. She is an ardent advocate for debate, believing that communication and conversation is the first step towards action. On the personal side, she loves travel, coffee and films from Hollywood’s ‘Golden Age’.
