"Hi! My name is Anushka and I am a Goldwater fellow in the creative writing program at New York University. Teaching is an important component of my fellowship, and every week I am one of the instructors at a writing workshop for disabled adults at Coler Hospital on Roosevelt Island (although this semester has been conducted over Zoom).

My work there was to research individual cases as well as the broader realities of domestic violence and write or edit grant proposals.
