Manraaj Grewal

My parents named me Manraaj, which means Queen of Hearts, and I have been trying to justify that name ever since. I am an immigrant from India changing one country, and five schools since then. I am known from dropping Bollywood references in daily conversations and am currently studying Communications at Douglas, hoping to become a journalist. I love reading biographies of successful people, watching a select few TV shows (fine it's mostly Bigg Boss!) and every imaginable sport there is (I especially enjoy the yelling during cricket matches).
