Gretchen Gatan (Published: 78 Articles)
It’s a little difficult to capture who Gretchen really is—with all her little quirks and complexities. One thing is certain—she spends most of her time writing in the attic. What strikes you as quiet, shy, and a bit aloof can also be strange, giggly, and extremely awkward. With a major in Creative Writing from Ateneo de Manila University, it’s only natural that this 25-year old child-at-heart enjoys creating fantasies in her head and reading fiction—mostly fanfiction. She finds happiness in playing ultimate and going on spontaneous adventures with her partner in crime, the Cupcake. She loves food more than she loves people. She likes to dress up in pretty frocks, classic pieces, and a variety of skirts. She’ll book a trip to the beach any chance she can get, and hopes to see more of the world. The Junkyard is literally a dump site of her favorite things. To get the latest updates and watch out for Greta’s Junkyard Giveaways, like the Junkyard’s Facebook page or follow her on Twitter.
