Eka Tawe

Eka, 17, is the type of person you first notice when you walk into a room. If it’s not from her loud volume, it’s from the genius words that come out of her mouth. Eka is a talented musician, who not only sings but also plays the marimba, guitar, electric bass, trombone, piano and drums. She hopes that if she ever meets Harry Styles she can impress him with her musical abilities. If Eka’s not playing music, she’s seeing it live at a concert. To help fund her concert-ticket obsession, she plans to pursue a career as a dentist. Eka says she is perfect for the job because due to her unhealthy eating habits she can tell her patients exactly what not to do. In her second year on the Sex, Etc. teen staff, Eka especially enjoys writing about LGBTQ topics to help bring awareness to a group that she believes is underrepresented in sex education.
