Starr Wang

Starr Wang

Starr Wang is an “outgoing-aspiring architect-indie music lover-fashion forward” high school student who is usually 90% stressed out because of her IB curriculum workload. Nevertheless, she takes time to indulge in movies, chocolate, Bikram yoga, vintage clothes and most importantly, art. Whether she’s covered with papier-mâché, dancing to the rhythm, or learning how to play the guitar, alto sax and flute all at the same time, it is obvious that her life revolves around anything related to art. Her current obsessions are, lomography and funky sunglasses. She lives by this quote: “Carpe Diem”, which means “Seize the Day” in Latin, which also explains her profound ability to procrastinate. Don’t forget to say hi to Starr, she loves friendly strangers!
