‘Reflections’ is an independent endeavour by Ananya Grover of Batch of 2020, Amity International School, Noida, to establish a magazine that gives young people a platform to express themselves on things that matter to them. It is meant for and is made by us, the kids.
The magazine has only one home: this website www.reflectionsmag.in – where every alternate month, a new issue is published. Each issue would be based around new, exciting, and relevant themes that will inspire you to think from different perspectives and give you an opportunity to express your opinions through creative mediums of your choice: be it poetry, cartoons or even videos.
This initiative will succeed only through your active participation and sharing. You – who run a personal writing blog or keep a portfolio of all your drawings or manage online pages featuring your photography or just doodle into your notebook when class gets too boring – now have a chance to get your work and your voice out to a bigger, wider audience.
‘Reflections’ will push you, the artists, to reflect, and you, in turn, have the opportunity to make your viewers reflect.

WHO ‘WE’ ARE:
Yashasvini is a certified jack-of-all-trades who worries too much about everything she's involved in (which is plentiful at any given point). Your resident writer-turned-editor, she is emotionally dependent on working, her moral constitution and the Thesaurus.
Tanvi JainAssociate Editor
Tanvi is an editor and content writer who pens down short stories, poetry and articles for every issue, which she eagerly learns from. Her pieces are thought-provoking, and have a personal touch each time she writes. Her true loves include dance, books and sleep.
Ishani is a budding writer, professional procrastinator and a teenager passionate for change. Her well-thought pieces are sure to keep a reader pondering for hours at end.
“If you can’t annoy somebody, there is little point in writing.” These are words that Adya stands by for her all her work. Each articulate write-up certainly entertains every reader.

Tanya SharmaGraphic Designer
Tanya's work is guided by a strong belief in design as a way of recognizing and forming relationships between ideas and reality.
Jigyasa SharmaMarketing Head

As Jhanwi says, ”Being an optimist is exhausting!” She likes to keep a positive outlook towards life. Any work to be done for the socials at the shortest notice? Don't worry, she'll take care of it!
Mohak SaxenaIT Guy
Mohak loves speaking his mind out in every situation. A doer, he intensely pursues things which interest him until he gets a desired result. He can be very persuasive at times and wants to be a part of every discussion that is happening around.
