Kasturi Pananjady is a Senior Staff Writer for The Herald on the Diversity and Student Life beat. A freshman from India, Kasturi prefers not to think about the Big Questions just yet, such as picking a concentration or whether she has started pronouncing the word “sampling” with an American accent. Outside the office, she dabbles in acting, creative writing and teaching. She has a weakness for cooking shows and is surprisingly good at baking, with a 1-0 record against a vegan Chocolate Fudge cake. But she is never going to give it a chance to catch up.
