Anya Nedungadi is 16 years old, studying Higher Level Global Politics, Higher Level History, and Higher Level AA Maths in the International Baccalaureate program (IB). She studies at North London Collegiate School in London and is the Deputy Youth MP in Camden.

“Generosity means taking my privilege and using it to give back to my community.”
The magazine Bridging the Gap aims to prevent the segregation that the school system creates by forming communication lines between all of the youth in Camden and by creating a space to share our stories, opinions, and backgrounds. This work targets the disparity between the quality of teaching in private schools and the quality of teaching in state schools. Future programs include peer mentoring between students from state schools and private schools in order to create more integration.
