Hi! My name is Eshika and I am on my second year on the staff of the SHS Leaf as a sophomore. Apart of the Leaf, I am a co-business manager where I help with organizing ads for the magazine. Some of my favorite classes include math and chemistry. Outside of school, I play tennis and dance apart a Bhangra team called Gajdi Jawani.I have been dancing since I was three and enjoy every second of it. Although I enjoy these activities a lot, ultimately, I have an enormous passion for traveling the world. I have been to most of the states in the United States including Hawaii and Alaska, and have been to 3 other countries. I plan to go to Europe this spring and am so excited to do so! I hope to continue my education after college in math and science, but I am not totally sure of what specific area I would like to go into. I am thinking of the medical field, but I would still like to explore other areas such as engineering. As of now, I’ll focus on the present and as new opportunities come by, I’ll play it by ear. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me in my next year of journalism!
