A current undergraduate student at Yale, Ananya Kumar-Banerjee is an avid consumer of all things literary and political. She is a double major in Ethnicity, Race & Migration and History, as well as a Human Rights Scholar. Ananya is a New Yorker of South Asian origin who grew up in a family that has long supported the arts. Her mother, Rina Banerjee, is a South Asian American artist. As a child, Ananya lived in Williamsburg, Bedford Stuyvesant, the Financial District, and Morningside Heights. As a five-year-old, she attended a bilingual public school in New Yorker's Chinatown. As the daughter of immigrants who grew up in a distinctly multi-cultural city, Ananya is a passionate transnational feminist. Much of her work wrangles with the complexity of her identity.
