Amilya hails from Elmira Ontario, a small town that has it’s fair share of horse and buggies and big chain stores. Amilya loves athletics and can usually be found dancing, running, or chasing a ball around, when she isn’t writing of course. She probably has an unhealthy obsession with Star Wars and music (specifically Elton John), so if you want someone to explain the complexities and missteps of the music and scoring of the sequel Star Wars trilogy, she's your girl. When she has time she sews and bakes and reads, and she would highly recommend drinking a hot chocolate, eating a croissant, and reading a good book (Flowers for Algernon is always a good choice).
Anu is a high school student at O’Neill CVI specializing in PA (Performing Arts). She’s a singer and a performer. In her free time, she enjoys gaming and graphic design. She’s a little obsessed with cartoons and funky liner.
