Melissa Liu (she/her)

Melissa (she/her), 17, is ready for another year here at Sex, Etc.! She’s especially interested in writing about the intersection between sex education and mental health. Through her writing, she hopes to reduce stigma and increase awareness around honest, inclusive and comprehensive sex education. Melissa writes for fun as well, creating comedy sketches (watch out for her Saturday Night Live debut someday!). Melissa’s countless interests extend beyond writing. Playing tennis on her school’s varsity team and participating in youth orchestras (she plays the cello) are part of her regular routine. During her free time, you can find her curled up on the couch, most likely enjoying reruns of The Office or Friends. Melissa’s passionate about what she does, but if you strike up a conversation with her, you’ll quickly realize she also has a wicked sense of humor!
