An avid reader and debater, Giitanjali is a 16-year-old budding writer and (hopefully) a prospective lawyer. Passionate about social issues, she is also a part of Humsafar Trust, a pro-LGBTQI NGO. Her poems have been published twice and she is also the co-editor of her school magazine, Dhruv. Binge-watching TV shows and reading for days on end are a few of the things she does well. You can follow her writing on her blog thenerdyself.
