Anna Caltabiano
teen author and media commentator

Anna Caltabiano is a child of the transnational cyber punk era. She was born in British colonial Hong Kong and educated in Mandarin Chinese schools before moving to Palo Alto, California; the heart of Silicon Valley and the mecca of futurism. Now a student in Brown University’s eight-year medical program, she continues to pursue her interest in healing through the science of medicine and the power of narrative. Her writing reflects her concerns for her own generation as it seeks out salvation, meaning, and companionship in online communities, with pop culture as its shared language.
