Westchester Interns

  • Rodlyn-Mae Banting


    Rodlyn is thrilled to be joining the Westchester Writopia Lab team as a summer college intern. She is an undergraduate student at Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore, and is pursuing an English-Writing interdisciplinary major and a Gender Studies minor. She is the Arts & Society editor of their online news source, The Greyhound, and an editor for the Poetry & Fiction section of Loyola’s literary magazine, Corridors. In her free time, she enjoys yoga, feminist literature, and writing poetry.

  • Isabella Japal


    Isabella is super excited to be part of the Writopia community this summer as an intern in Westchester! Isabella is a rising sophomore at Mount Holyoke College. She has not yet declared her major, but is leaning towards English. Isabella is a Speaking Arguing Writing mentor in her school's writing center, an Arts & Entertainment writer for the Mount Holyoke News, and an active member of the Mount Holyoke dance department.

  • Matthew Bernstein


    Matt is truly excited, ecstatic, and electrified to be a part of Writopia’s team as an intern this summer in Westchester. He is a soon-to-be sophomore (whoa!) at Stanford University pursuing a degree in English Literature. At school, way on the other side of the country (double whoa!), Matt participates in an eclectic and time-consuming, crazy-making mixture of writing, theater, and improv. He is a staff writer and desk editor for The Stanford Daily and a staff writer and frequent drummer for Ram’s Head Theatrical Society. During his rare trips home, you can usually find him responding to demands for attention and affection from his cat and/or dog. He somehow got a short science-fiction story published in Bewildering Stories Magazine back in 2015.
