Kevin Chen

Student Researcher

Kevin Chen is a student at Cleveland STEM High School in Seattle, Washington. Fascinated by literature from a young age, he has been devoted to writing for as long as he can recall. He views writing as a powerful method of self-expression with the ability to amplify awareness toward global issues. In addition to his craft, he is an avid trumpetist in his school ensemble and enjoys traveling throughout Western Washington.​

His article, “Disadvantageous Authority in Things Fall Apart”, is an analytical composition of Things Fall Apart, a novel by renowned author Chinua Achebe. It chronologically dissects a theme surrounding the main character’s egotism with three elaborative components: family, colonialism, and death. Each concept is then projected into morals surrounding global issues such as racism, sexism, and mental illnesses.
