Cougars of Clague: Saanvi Kulkarni

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

A: “My name is Saanvi and I’m in 7th grade. I love to write, which I spend like at least 1 hour on every day, and I also read way too much — my favorite author is currently Jennifer Nielsen, though it’s always changing. I have way too many favorite books, but if I had to name one, it would probably be Untwine by Edwidge Danticat. I also draw/sketch a lot, though painting is something I generally would watch people do rather than do it myself… Also, I love to travel!”


Q: What is your favorite class and why?

A: “While a reasonable answer would be ELA, since I love reading and writing, I find it actually not as great as reading and writing on my own. And I’m not a fan of geometry, so I can’t say math, and using that logic I rule out all my classes – except Lunch and Advisory. I know lunch isn’t technically a class, but… food! Food is great. And advisory because we don’t do much in advisory.”


Q: What hobbies/sports/clubs do you do and why do you like them?

A: “As mentioned before, I love reading and writing, and I also do karate as well as piano. I’m a part of the Clague newspaper (Cougar Star) as well as the yearbook, too. I love newspaper and yearbook because they’re fun ways to express myself and a great thing to do in my free time — like I’m having fun, but also being productive. I love piano because it’s just really fun to express myself through music, and see what different kinds of music I can play, and maybe even be able to compose one day!”


Q: What is something you are proud of?

A: “I really don’t know what I’m proud of, and I want to say finishing elementary school, but that’s something I definitely cannot say I’m proud of without straight-up lying. So, even though I definitely do not enjoy Kumon whatsoever, I guess I’m proud of making it into the top 3% in math in Kumon USA in 2021. (I’m doing my best not to make that last sentence a question.)


Q: What’s an interesting/unique fact about yourself?

A: “A fun fact about me is that I collect boarding passes or really any type of pass/ticket!”
