Sanaë Lemoine is a junior in the College. She was born in Paris. She is half-French half-Japanese. When she was four she moved to Australia where she developed a liking for walking barefoot. She returned to France at age eleven. Growing up, she would relentlessly demand that her parents tell her stories. Thankfully her mother has an inexhaustible imagination and great patience. Now Sanaë writes her own ones...
