Ananya Grover’s words:

I’m an incoming freshman at Princeton University, fortunate to have had the opportunity to pursue what I love from a young age. A creative at heart, I’m the Founding Editor of a global online magazine for High School students called Reflections Magazine (http://reflectionsmag.in), a Kathak dancer in training, and a budding public speaker. 

I have a strong academic record. My academic passions lie in CS and Economics especially at their intersection. A firm believer in the power of technology as a force for good, I developed the app ‘Maitri’ for residents of old age homes and orphanages with my team. My most important task on the team was keeping us all together! 

My personal experiences and observations led me to become an activist for Menstrual Hygiene Management and conduct research in the field. 

To every endeavour I take on, I bring my unwavering commitment, drive for perfection, and out-of-the-box thinking.
