Christy Leigh Agrawal
Christy Leigh Agrawal is a native of New York and hails from a Mid-Hudson Valley town called Hyde Park. She is in her last year studying English Literature and Creative Writing at SUNY Geneseo and hopes (despite looming fears of post-graduate life) to pursue a career that relates to both poetry and civil rights law. She has enjoyed all of her various involvements at schools including tutoring English for the CEC, being a reader and soon to be managing editor to the Gandy Dancer literary magazine, and serving as the fundraising chair for the Thoreau-Harding Project. She is passionate about the Islamic feminist movement and eliminating stigmas associated with mental illness and addiction.
