Audrey Heath (she/her) is a recent graduate of Simon Fraser University's (SFU), School of Communication with a Bachelor of Arts. Double majoring in Communications and Indigenous Studies provides her with an interdisciplinary approach when it comes to writing, often including Indigenous ways of knowing. As a member of the Gitxsan Nation in Northern British Columbia, she uses her opportunities as a student and staff member at SFU to highlight Indigenous voices and promote Indigenous initiatives.

Judy Yae Young Kim is currently doing her Master of Arts in Communication at Simon Fraser University. She received her BA (with distinction) at Simon Fraser University in Communication with a minor in Sociology. Her paper, “AI Translators and the International K-Pop Fandom on Twitter” won second place for the Plurilingual prize at the 2021 SLC Undergraduate Writing Contest, and was presented at the 2022 Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology Undergraduate Conference at Simon Fraser University. As a member of the Korean diaspora, the globalization of Korean pop culture has always fascinated her, and she hopes to continue her research on this. When not devouring webcomics or extensively analyzing K-pop, she can be found crocheting or hanging out with her sweet cat, Kimchi.

Siddhartha Minas is a Bachelor of Arts students in English and French literature, as well as the Humanities. As he came into Simon Fraser University with a dramatic and cosmopolitan background, he has always had a passion for stories of a variegated nature. To learn of the beauty that exists in the variegated lives of others, how such experiences are exchanged between people, is what inspires him to delve into his studies of the human condition. He is currently studying abroad in Tours, France, reaping the city's literary legacy and gathering all his rosebuds while he may.
