Aashna Rai

First Reader

A student at UWC Mahindra College in India, Aashna has an ardent love for writing, music and theatre, and is immensely passionate about social change. She is a firm believer in the power of education to change the world, especially by using the arts as a medium. When not editing for Polyphony Lit or playing Debussy on the piano, she can be found working as The Young Writers Initiative's Education Director, eating chocolate, staring desolately at the blinking cursor of a new Word document or watching dreamy rom-coms in her pajamas.
