With a passion for mystery novels and art, especially realistic drawings and cartoons, Nrithya finds joy in many creative pursuits. Living in Valley Ranch, she has been a student under Coppell ISD since first-grade. As a lover of all things artistic, Nrithya likes chill music and has a love for singer and songwriter, Taylor Swift.
