Die Bärliner - The Bard College Berlin Student Blog

tanyaTanya Sampath Sharma is a sophomore at Bard College, Berlin. Having just completed her Manch Pravesh in Odissi last August, Tanya loves to dance and will most probably dance away from any problem she is faced with. When she’s not holed up in her room binge-watching Criminal Minds or Orange Is The New Black, Tanya loves to read and take photographs. Her hobbies even extend to writing poetry and excessively argumentative social issues articles.
She is extremely passionate about human rights issues, especially those concerning young girls, and has volunteered at various community activities and organizations such as Aarti Home. Be careful not to get into a Facebook argument with her – she’ll argue with you till you collapse and beg for sweet death.
