Gabriella Miranda is the current National Student Poet for the West region. She was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT, is a senior at Rowland Hall. Her adoration for creating and enjoying written work stemmed from the support of her family, one that has generously given colorful, animated readings at bedtime and frequent visits to the library. Gabriella centers her work around depictions of human relationships, the complexities of looking for connection, and what it means to build an identity from the foundation of another’s. Within the creative writing program, she has been an editor of her school’s literary magazine since her freshman year and currently serves on a national editorial board that generates content about youth advocacy. Gabriella hopes to continue to connect with others who appreciate and breathe life into the platform of the written word.
