Akshat Motwani

Akshat Motwani

Hey, I am Akshat, a fun loving person and a through and through sports enthusiast. You will see me spending ample time playing, watching or discussing sports. I was always attracted to a Liberal Arts education because I strongly felt that it holistically prepares you to face life’s journey. The opportunity to be a part of Krea’s founding batch and shape the university was a definite Yes.

What makes me, ME?

I enjoy reading books on Behavioural Economics. Being a foodie, I thoroughly enjoy watching food vlogs. I also watch a lot of travel vlogs. I meditate and work out regularly because self-care is something I deeply believe in. My taste in music moves from Penn Masala to Post Malone and I also play a bit of the flute. If you want to talk about F1, the Red Devils, CSK or anything under the sun, all you need to do is reach out.

Ananya Raju

Ananya Raju

Hi, this is Ananya. I am passionate about travelling – exploring new communities, cultures and perspectives – talking, listening, understanding social dynamics. Experiences like these coupled with my love for math, kindle my interest in subjects such as data, economics, policymaking and behavioural economics. Apart from these, I am a swimmer, horse-rider, avid debater and love acting.

What makes me, ME?

I enjoy dark humour, adventure sports and Indian classical fusion music. I also love indulging in self-care, mindfulness, handlooms and handicrafts and conspiracy theories. I am here, if you want to chat on any of the above or simply about Krea academics, student life, student government, opportunities offered, faculty or anything else at all.

Arnav Jalan

Arnav Jalan

Hey, I am Arnav. A year ago, I took on the role of Director and CTO in an ed-tech startup. I realized that start-ups need you to don multiple hats, it made me understand the need to be adaptable and flexible in today’s unpredictable world. Krea’s interwoven approach is indeed effective in these regards.

What makes me, ME?

I enjoy playing table tennis, foosball, and joining impromptu Just Dance sessions organized by the gaming club. I also like to partake in choir sessions, despite how terrible my voice is.
I like discussing design, social entrepreneurship, strategy, web development amongst many other topics. You could talk to me about Krea, may it be Academics, the Work-Study Program, Campus Life, or absolutely anything else.

Eeshna Gupta

Eeshna Gupta

Hey there! I’m Eeshna. A 19 year old whose personality fluctuates between 12 and 30. I’m extremely passionate about the community, without a ‘K’ (you’ll be surprised to see how good we are at replacing the C’s at Krea). I also enjoy walking with and talking to people around campus and watching sunsets.

What makes me, ME?

I enjoy music and outreach, I’m still exploring my interests and like to try out new things. You can talk to me about anything and everything except academics (just kidding!).

What drew me to Krea was hearing about its liberal atmosphere, the wide-ranging courses but mostly, the convenience of getting an education comparable to well-reputed colleges abroad and being able to make a founding impact by being a part of its first few batches.

Jahnavi Chandramouli

Jahnavi Chandramouli

Hi there, my name is Jahnavi, with an “H”. I am 19 years old, and I’ve lived in three cities so far – Bhubaneshwar, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. Mostly Bengaluru, for as long as I can remember. I usually spend almost all my time organising my work and meeting deadlines, otherwise you can see me playing my green ‘Ukulele’ and catching up on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’.

What makes me, ME?

My hobbies currently range from playing my Ukulele, trying my hand at reading, revising economic concepts and singing uncommon songs. If you have questions regarding the working of clubs, academic rigor, playlists of uncommon Spotify songs, foundational course curriculum or anything else at Krea, reach out to me.

Having varied interests makes it difficult to receive opportunities to explore all of them. This made me appreciate Krea – for providing me an avenue to explore my diverse interests and more.
Manasa Krishnan

Manasa Krishnan

Hey, my name is Manasa. Having lived in Chennai my entire life, I have stereotypically grown up on idly-dosa, the beach and year-long summers – I absolutely adore the city. I must admit I’m not much of an outdoors person, and as a self-proclaimed nerd can be found poring over books or contemplating whether to do my assignments or not.

What makes me, ME?

A witty and sarcastic person (at least that’s what I like to think), I absolutely love cracking jokes (especially about other people). I’m a firm believer in the fact that high quantities of tea, sugar, and Maggi is all you require to subsist in college, and I am here if you want to talk about memes, internet culture, conspiracy theories, movies or even strategies to win at Monopoly. You could talk to me about anything at Krea.

Nikhil Misquith

Nikhil Misquith

Hi, I’m Nikhil Misquith (sounds like “biscuit”). In my free time, I can usually be found gaming, playing football, or making memes. I’m one of the representatives of the Gaming Club and a prominent reason why the university got our club a PS4. A traditional engineering degree wasn’t appealing to me and this encouraged me to look at Liberal Arts.

What makes me, ME?

Talk to me about anything to do with gaming, technology, the meme culture and of course, cats. Do get in touch with me to know more about various aspects of Krea.

Hey! I’m Sanjana Hattangdi. I’ve lived in Bombay my whole life. I have been a dancer for as long as I remember and enjoy sports, mainly football.

What makes me, ME?

I’m very into food so if you want to know a good place to eat, you know who to ask. As a dancer, I started off with Bharatanatyam and then moved onto jazz. Apart from being deeply involved in sports, mainly football, and dance, I also enjoy drawing random abstractions (primarily symmetrical ones because I cannot draw asymmetrical drawings) Food, dance, football, Krea, we could talk about any of these.

Krea has a very visionary and promising academic approach which was unlike anything I had seen. Coming from a second tier city and family that talks only in binaries, Krea gave me a platform to break these binaries and exposed me to an array of opportunities in academics, co-curriculars and extra-curriculars. But the biggest pull was the idea of building a university from scratch –Sarthak Jaiswal
