She loves bombastic rap music, South Indian food, and has a penchant for aesthetic-or-die photography. God bless you if you are ever at the receiving end of one of her infamous eye rolls – few have lived to tell the tale. A vocal feminist, she openly speaks about matters like mental health, able-ism and the rights of minorities.

You can rely on her to cheer you up with her constant (had to slip in a math reference in here) smile. Want to feel like you’re not doing enough for university? Navya’s your girl.
