Sriya Bandyopadhyay

Sriya Bandyopadhyay is a high school senior attending The American School of Dubai. Her poems have been published in The Blue Marble Review, The Weight Journal, Teen Ink, KidSpirit, Elan Magazine, The Rolling Stone and Footprints on Jupiter. Her poetry is inspired by the small details in her daily life but speaks to larger ideas of personal growth. As an author, she has progressed from writing solely about external events to internal reflections. Her first published book of poetry, Being The One, is a story on the struggles of mental health and the evolution of self-love. It is centred on a 16-year-old girl and her journey and challenges transitioning into a young adult, and how she overcomes those hurdles.


Aside from poetry, Bandyopadhyay is a passionate Western Classical Opera singer, a verified calligraphy tutor with over 1400 students worldwide, and has an avid interest in studying economics, mathematics, and data science in her higher education. In her free time, she enjoys kayaking in different parts of the UAE, like the Hatta Dam, Abu Dhabi Mangroves and Palm Jumeirah.
