Tanvi was born in New Delhi, India and moved to Canada when she was two years old. She has lived in Burnaby ever since. She joined the YAT in 2012 after attending the 2011 Summit, and is eternally grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing group of people. When she’s not at school or at YAT meetings, Tanvi can be found reading, writing, or rehearsing for an upcoming play.
