My name is Riya Keswani and I’m a sophomore at Carnegie Vanguard High School. I discovered my love for writing at a young age when I used to write stories for my sisters to perform. Since then, my passion for writing has evolved into a love for journalism and the press. When I’m not writing, I love to play volleyball, watch old films, interior decorate, sing, and play the drums. I moved from a small town to Houston four years ago and I immediately loved the city life and diversity in terms of people, food, and places. Carnegie is the perfect school for me because it really embodies the diversity of Houston through its students.
