Paige carries her backpack while riding the 13.

Paige

Paige is incredibly talented.

The London student has already won half a dozen gold medals for her work on the cello and certainly has more to go. But her life isn’t all about music.

The otaku—she’s a fan of Japanese pop culture—loves manga and anime. Her phone screen background features characters from video game Final Fantasy.

Like her entire family, she takes the bus every day from home to school and all around the city.
