MIT blogger Ankita D. '23


hi i’m Ankita! i’m very memey and enthusiastic and i love people with all my heart—so much that i often forget what alone time is, which is why being a blogger/introspecting in general is going to be great for me. i hope you’ll be at least mildly entertained as i shitpost my way through my four years at MIT (and perhaps occasionally adopt a more proper typing style as I talk about the Deep Stuff)

i enjoy doing a lot of things, but mainly:

dancing — i’m a self-taught hip hop dancer!! this sounds cool but i literally just mimicked YouTube choreography videos for like five years

watching anime — 60+ days of it, actually. my extensive list of favorites includes Monster, Hunter X Hunter, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, The Promised Neverland, and Haikyuu

learning languages (Japanese and Chinese) — weirdly enough, all that anime did quite a bit for my Japanese skills. and going to Japan a couple of times and experiencing its amazing culture convinced me that learning languages is The Move (seriously, it’s amazing), so I started learning Chinese as well!

obsessively curating my Spotify playlists (favorite artists: The Fratellis, The Arctic Monkeys, Abhi The Nomad, Glass Animals, Niki)

MIT is really freaking amazing and i’m super excited to experience it with all of you! stay tuned for a ton of crazy adventures and a ton more s t r u g g l e s :’)
