About Demeter

Hi, I’m Demeter! I got my name from the musical Cats, not the goddess, although she’s quite cool too.

I’m twenty-three and I study translation in university. I like hot chocolate with whipped cream. I like to rap sometimes. But please don’t tell anyone.

I love cool earrings and colourful nail polish. I love travelling and seeing new places, especially if those places make me feel like I’m in a Jane Austen book.

I discovered YWS in May 2008 when I was looking for a site to post stories and get comments. I’m really glad that I did, although nowadays I don't really post any of my own writing. I am working on a novel though!

My favourite book is the Catcher in the Rye and my favourite film is the Lion King, which you probably never guessed!

I also like fluffy baby seals. ^_^

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
