Ethan Wang is a junior attending Cinco Ranch High School. Raised by a family with a literary background in China, he was encouraged to read from a young age. His poems are written as attempts to tell personal stories, depict nostalgia, and embody the disjointed cultures he grew up with. Although Ethan usually writes poems for himself, he has published one collection titled Cloudy Skies. As the founder of his school’s writing club, he looks to encourage others to participate in the field.

Ethan is the 2020 National Student Poet for the Southwest.

Annually, five students are selected for one year of service, each representing a different geographic region of the country. The program believes in the power of youth voices to create and sustain meaningful change and supports them in being heard.
