Anwesha was brought up in India. She moved to Canada four years ago to complete her Undergraduate degree in History and English. During her high school years in India, she developed a curiosity towards subjects like History, English and Political Science that now informs her inclination to pursue political journalism. She was an influential contributing member to her school’s News and Debating Team, The Drama Club and The Social Services Society where she volunteered a significant amount of her time at orphanages and old age homes. Her other interests involve a 10 years pursuit of Classical Indian Dancing and playing field hockey for an additional 7 years, activities she still continues to pursue. Today, she is an active member of the community and she spends a considerable amount of her time volunteering. She is currently a volunteer and member of the Toronto Youth Cabinet (TYC) and The United Nations Association Canada (UNAC), where she hopes to make ongoing contributions.
