Hi! My name is Vaannila Annadurai and I am a senior attending duPont Manual High School in Louisville Kentucky. Last year, I had the honor of serving as a Teen Advisor for the first time, and I had an incredible time doing so. This year, I’m beyond ecstatic to have to opportunity to serve again as a Co-Chair.
I got involved with Girl Up during my sophomore year when I first started a Girl Up Club in my high school. Since then, I’ve been able to use the skills I’ve gained as a Teen Advisor to help start other clubs in my state, which has led to the creation of the Kentucky Girl Up Coalition.
Outside of Girl Up, I participate in my school’s Mock Trial team, I play the flute in my school’s band, and I love to read and travel. I’ve had the opportunity to visit a total of seven different countries, and while I loved them all, I think my favorite was South Africa.
I’m so excited to continue my term as a Teen Advisor, and to continue working with incredible young women from across the world.
