Isha Nagappan

Chennai, India

Isha Nagappan is a 16 year old who resides in Chennai and is in 11th grade now. As a kid, she always had a passion for writing and feels quite proud of all her article submissions as school projects. She took it a notch further at twelve when she was forced to watch a Ted Talk show with her mother which, to her surprise, she quite enjoyed. This Ted Talk was about a child prodigy, Adora Svitak, who started writing at the age of four, and for some reason, this show influenced Isha and made her want to write more. Her fictional world, which she used to get away from reality, became her first book. She was twelve years old when she completed it and she got it published at the age of thirteen. Her first book was teen fiction just like this one. She was extremely happy and proud of it but didn’t just want to be a one hit wonder. She wanted to continue writing, not to prove something, but for her own happiness. Her style of writing has evolved along with her through these past two years. Writing gives her pleasure, as she feels it is a stage for her to voice out her opinions and thoughts.

Join me, Alisha, as I take a walk down memory lane to a time when teenage drama was at its peak, hashtags were not “cool,” the battle with acne was never-ending, feelings for a boy wavered more...
