Howdy, my name is Nina Varma and I was born in New York but moved to Houston at a young age. My passion for writing sparked after taking a creative writing course one summer and now I craft short stories and other works whenever I can. Until I found writing, I was determined to be a pop star. Writing for School Buzz allows me to broaden my perspective through different outlets of writing as well help me to express my creativity. Aside from writing, I am a competitive squash (no, not the vegetable) player and compete at a national level. My love for the sport was passed down from my dad who played in high school and college. While the Houston squash community is small, it continues to grow. One fun fact about me is that I have an obsession with Milk and Cookies ice cream even though I am lactose intolerant. Although I was born in New York, I am proud to call myself a Texan.
