Anoushka Lal

Anoushka Lal is a student writer from Chicago, Illinois, who pens socio-political op-eds from a Gen Z lens. She serves as a youth commissioner for Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and is on the board of the Illinois High School Democrats.

When Anoushka is not glancing over the SAT study books stacked in the corner — unopened, chances are she is Grubhubbing local Ethiopian food, straining her vocal chords to Adele, or mentally rebutting nonsensical tweets.
