I’m Ahana and I’m delighted to be a part of the team!
I am currently studying English, History, and Religious Studies in addition to an EPQ analysing the philosophy behind the poetry of Sylvia Plath and Allen Ginsberg. I intend to study English Literature at university.
At Putney, I have been provided with so many opportunities. Through my work as editor of the school’s student magazine A Study in Purple, I have found that I am dedicated to elevating the student voice and showcasing the best of Putney, whether that be students’ art, writing, opinions or poetry across all year groups.
Additionally, Putney has hosted creative writing workshops by a series of prolific poets such as Daljit Nagra and Mary Jean Chan which I have attended. The support the school has given my creative work has allowed me to place in various national and international youth poetry competitions, including the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award in 2019 and 2020.
I am so honoured to be working together with such a brilliant team, and I hope our collective optimism will help generate positive change and foster a warm environment at Putney!
