Anyata grew up in Vermont, and is now a senior at Bard College majoring in French studies and concentrating in human rights. Starting in June, they will be a grad student in Bard’s MAT program, earning a certification in teaching English literature for grades 7-12. Anyata has always loved reading and writing, especially fiction and anything creative, and is very excited to be able to share that love with students. Outside of academics, Anyata plays Ultimate Frisbee with Bard’s club team and a bit of Ukulele. They enjoy warm cups of tea, sitting in the sun, and hiking.
