Ankit Agrawal
A junior at Jefferson, Ankit is in his third year of working on the newsmagazine staff. As an Editor-in-Chief, Ankit oversees production of online and print articles, designs spreads for the magazine issues, and heads the tjTODAY staff in order to ensure deadlines are met for production dates. During his freshman year at Jefferson, Ankit served as a staff reporter, while during his sophomore year, he acted as a Team Leader. Ankit joined tjTODAY because he began to explore his interest in the humanities during middle school, and wanted to continue developing his passion through high school while also obtaining a STEM-based education. Ankit enjoys photography, listening to music such as Pentatonix, and has interests in medicine, computer science, and mathematics. Outside of journalism, Ankit is a part of the non-profit Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education (GIVE), and is a member of Jefferson's Policy Debate Team. After high school, Ankit would like to pursue a career in the biomedical sciences or computer science field.
