Meet Our Team

Meet Our Founder & Editor-In-Chief :

Tanya Kathuria, 19 and ambitious. She’s a media enthusiast currently in her final year pursuing English literature from Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. Tanya is more passionate about news than about cupcakes so we know where her priorities lie. She’s interned at many places but still thinks her CV is empty, talk about ambitious? Her vision was cultivated when she found so many people didn’t know about Jamia and it’s community; a few online courses in community journalism and guidance from the best professors in Cardiff is what helped her make it a success. Dance, journalism, writing, media, travelling – anything else you want to know can be found in the links given below.
