Ishika Menrai is an undergraduate at New York University Abu Dhabi double majoring in Film and New Media and Philosophy with a minor in the Business of Entertainment, Media and Technology (BEMT).

She aims to use film as a medium of freedom to be curious, creative and explore different realms to connect with her consciousness and try to make a difference to the world we live in.

Menrai has always been interested in culture, expression and identity following her background in Kathak (Indian Classical Dance). She hopes to combine her interest in Philosophy, Psychology and Philanthropy with film to tell stories that have not yet reached the public.
