Apuroopa Kavikondala is currently a sophomore in high school and absolutely adores writing. She published her first book, The Voice At The Back of My Head, at the age of fourteen and her second, Please Just Stop, a year later. Alongside her books, Apuroopa also writes weekly articles on Substack, wanting to expand her network and knowledge of the art. She loves to help people, so she hopes to combine that with her undying passion for writing to do more for the greater good. Apuroopa would like to give a huge shout-out to everyone who supported her in this journey starting with her family, friends, and fellow readers and writers.
