Ariella Tania Amanda

Hello, how do I save the World?

Ariella Tania Amanda is a moody-and-atmospheric-stories enthusiast. Although her love of the wonderous world of stories started at an early age, it was not until 2013 when her English teacher said “Wow! That’s amazing!” about ‘It’s A Beautiful World’ – her submission to the class’s story-writing competition– in front of the whole class that she considered taking on writing for the rest of her life. She is a Creative and Professional Writing undergraduate student at Bangor University, striving to be a published writer. Currently, she is experimenting on the genre of magical realism, bildungsroman, and surrealism; which resulted in ‘Hello, How do I save the World?’

"The stained glass wings of the Exam Ship closed with a hydraulic gush and the hemispherical trap was complete. On the parquet floor of this portable atrium, this nucleus of neural gymnastics hanging in a carbon dioxide sky, seven hundred and twelve golden pupils were instructed to turn over the cover page of their Eleven Plus and each adolescent eye locked with words of God - " from 'The Child with a Fang in its Heart"
