ABOUT | CONTACT

IMG_7220.JPG

I am a third year English and Art History student from India.  

 

During my time at St. Andrews, over the past two years, I have been actively involved in interacting with people from diverse backgrounds. I have held the positions on committees for The Art Society, The Southasian Society, St Andrews Multicultural Week and Catwalk Charity Fashion Show. 

When I'm in town, I can almost always be found sitting in the window seat at Taste (on North Street), though in times of Covid 19 im afraid that might change. Alternatively you can get in touch with me via email at aj201@st-andrews.ac.uk or Facebook.
