Stephanie, Age: 17. I am a slightly crazy teenage girl who’s scared of driving, boyfriends, college, romance, and wasps, but loves to use her imagination and be creative. I’m not into boys, clothes, hair or make-up, but I AM into books (total bookworm!), music (especially piano), movies, chocolate, fantasy, and sci-fi stuff. I’m also a homeschooled Christian pastor’s kid and DARN PROUD OF IT!!
