Saahithya Gutta, Staff Writer

Saahithya Gutta is a junior and a staff writer at the Birdfeed. This is her first year in journalism and she is super excited to work with the brilliant writers here and write brilliant and riveting stories. While she is mostly a creative writer, this year she is exploring journalistic pieces because she believes that it’s important to step outside your comfort zone. When she isn’t swamped with school work, she is either creating art or expanding her skill set to include things such as sewing and astrology. She spends most of her time watching youtube videos and trying to convince her mom to let her eat an entire tub of ice cream. You can contact her at her email, [email protected], or her twitter, @Thya_G
