Anannya Akella is a designer, interactive artist, photographer, and dancer. Exposed to dance at the age of 5, creativity has been a leading force in her life for as long she can remember. Having grown up with a poet/author mom and a software engineer dad, she saw the importance of both STEM and Art early on and believes that there is always a place for both, no matter how conflicting they may seem. Now, equally determined to find harmony between the two, she is a first-year Interactive Media Arts major at New York University where she hopes to concentrate on fashion and performance.

With a background in graphic design, Anannya has always been drawn to aesthetics and has a naturally detail-oriented focus. This mindset has led her to become an editor for the new in-house magazine, FFZine, at Future Fashion Group, an NYU group focused on sustainable innovation and design. She is also a dancer for NYU Nasha, a competitive fusion dance team where she both choreographs and performs. She continues to teach several dance classes and take on freelance design projects.
