WRITTEN BY NIKHITA MAKAM
Nikhita Makam, author of '14 works by a 14 year old', calls herself a 'high school student by day, programming poet by night'. She believes that poetry has power, something that her mother taught her. She finds happiness in reading, writing, gardening, octopuses, and wondering about ladybugs. She tries her best to maintain a balance between all of her hobbies, school and the common dreaded enemy to all high school students- homework.
