Welcome, visitor. My full name is Zeynep Erva Alptekin, more commonly known as Zeynep, and less commonly as Zeywhip Zeynaenae, and even less commonly known as Zeybaebae. I am currently an attendee of the Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science at WPI, but since no one wants to be that extra, we call it Mass Academy. Or MAMS.


I am 16 years old, and since my birthday is on July 13, no one celebrates it except my family. Fun fact: I was born on a Friday the 13th, which may explain quite a bit about my personality.

I currently live with my 4 younger siblings (3 brothers and 1 sister for those of you asking), parents, and crazy cat. The cat is named Lokum, which is the Turkish word for Turkish delight (you know, the sweet). She’s a Himalayan and only active when I’m trying to get to bed.

I am Turkish, and I get asked where I’m from a lot. To set the record straight: I was born in Massachusetts, America, and I’ve lived here all my life. My mother was born in Turkey, and my father, though very Turkish, was (surprisingly) born in New Mexico.

I am an avid reader. I used to really like young adult books. Recently, I've found that I actually enjoy books that have more intricate and unique plots, such as Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. My mother originally got me interested in Russian authors, and in the near future, I plan to read The Brothers Karamozov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. In the meantime, though, for an absolutely harrowing read, I would 172% recommend reading Living Dead girl by Elizabeth Scott. Her writing style is incredibly versatile, and expresses the situation of a prisoner in ways I never imagined.

I have a favorite restaurant. I go there with my friends quite often because of their amazing mozzarella sticks. It’s called Dean Park Pizza, and I HIGHLY recommend them. Their food is excellent. The nice lady behind the counter started saying, "see you soon," to us because it's obvious that we will come again. You can check them out here. This is a picture my friend took of me eating their mozzarella sticks.
