Hanna Etu is a Buffalo, New York native passionate about writing, literature, and travel. From a young age, she loved to read and write and attempted to write her own novels. This love for words has continued on into the rest of her life through constant writing. She is heavily influenced by the novels of Jane Austen and the dark humor of David Sedaris.
Hanna graduated from Canisius College in the spring of 2015 with a degree in English, Creative Writing, and German. Throughout college, she began to focus more on creative nonfiction. She hopes to publish a few memoirs someday. She studied abroad at the Catholic University of Eichstätt in Bavaria, Germany in the spring semester of 2014. During her senior year of college, Hanna was the co-editor-in-chief of the Quadrangle, Canisius College’s literary and visual arts magazine.
For Hanna, writing is about sharing a part of one’s creative soul. She sees writing as a way for creative people to show others little glimpses of their imagination that they would not be able to express otherwise. Hanna writes to acknowledge art, beauty, and new and interesting places and people.
