In the last couple of years, Amy Zhao has written and published four books. For anyone who makes their living as a writer, this would make for a busy time. But for the Kenmore resident, writing is not her only focus. Because as a 9-year-old, attending Sunrise Elementary School in Redmond plays a bigger role in her life. But despite her schooling, Amy makes sure to make time to write. “I have a ton of stories in my mind and I want to get them out on paper,” she said.
