Aanya Shah


My name is Aanya Shah and I am currently a freshman here at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, where I am in the Class of 2026 I2 program. As an I2 scholar, my favorite subjects are Math and World History. I am also a basketball player, dancer, and avid sailor. I am a part of the Sea Scouts program here in San Francisco where we work on, sail, fix, and build boats. In my free time, I love to read books and spend time with my friends and family. I also advocate for Women’s Rights and Mental Health Awareness. This year I hope to revolve my academic exploration project around Mental Health and how it affects our everyday life.

Some subjects I would love to explore more about subjects like Politics, Architecture, Geography, and Psychology. My goals through my high school years are to find things I enjoy doing. I want to learn a diverse range of subjects and meet different people within the next four years. On a side note, one pastime I have is listening to music. Anything from Indie Rock to Alt Z, Billie Eilish, Cavetown, you name it! Throughout COVID, I got to study different music genres and how music can influence people.

Overall, I love to learn about the world around us! The Inquiry and Innovation program here at SHC is an amazing opportunity to explore more about our social and scientific environment.
