Annushka Agarwal lives in Beautiful British Columbia, and is in Grade 10 at West Point Grey Academy. Some of her interests include travelling, eating s’more-flavoured Pop Tarts, and debating competitively (while trying to figure out who runs her school’s anonymous Instagram debate account). You can also find her appreciating literature at the Central Public Library, much to the mockery of her friends.
