Anika Sanka is a sophomore at Robinson and a staff writer of Knight Writers. This is her first year on staff.

Sanka was brought to Journalism by her interest in creative writing and expressing her opinions through writing. An opinionated storyteller, Sanka favors opinion pieces where she can emphasize what she feels most passionate about.

"I think stories where you can tell the reader is interested in and passionate about what they are writing about are much more enjoyable reads. That's why I like opinion pieces," Sanka said.

Outside of the newsroom, Sanka enjoys AP European History and Biology class, which she misses from last year. She likes science, just not when math is involved.

Sanka finds much time to avoid math by reading, dancing, attending meetings at the YMCA Leaders program or attending track practice.

"Practice is five days a week and we have meets most weeks. It's kind of hard but pretty rewarding overall. Running recreationally to uplifting playlists is one of my [favorite] things to do," Sanka said

In her free time Sanka enjoys going thrifting, shopping at her favorite store, Trader Joe's, or watching trashy, early '00s kid's movies. Some of her favorites include "A Cinderella Story," "She's That Man" and "How To Train Your Dragon." She loves trashy teen movies because she finds the predictable cliches and bad dialogue funny.

When Sanka gets home and is ready to wind down from the day, she indulges in her favorite sweet treats, which are often chocolate based.

"The thought of watching "Shameless" and eating a snack after school is the only thing that gets me through the day," Sanka said.

Another one of Sanka's motives to get through the day is daydreaming about traveling, which she loves to do whenever she can. She wishes to one day go to Thailand because she wants to experience a culture that is extremely diverse from ours, and she loves their food.

Sanka is excited for her future, but hasn't decided what she wants to be yet.

"I'm not sure what I'm going to do, but I'll see where newspaper takes me," Sanka said.
