Vedika Mandapati is a member of Pathways World School Aravali's (India) class of 2021. Before this, Vedika lived in Peru and Mexico, which has greatly influenced the way she thinks. Currently a Second Reader for Polyphony Lit, she can be found in front of her piano or scrolling through submissions at almost all times. When she's not editing or playing piano, you can hunt down Vedika in her room playing clarinet solos or practicing for orchestra. Sometimes, she can be found posting her various poems and book reviews on her blog. Vedika is proud to have had her work published in The Claremont Review.
