Hi! My name is Vishaal Krishan and I'm a high schooler from Southern California. Starting from a young age, I've always been interested in politics and had a passion to truly change our country, and this world, for the better. YIP has been such a fantastic way for me to begin making an impact and I'm so excited to see what the future holds! Politically, I identify as a Progressive Democrat. Some of my other extracurriculars/hobbies include debate, cooking, baking, and working with animals. I hope you enjoy reading my articles and that they motivate you to become more politically active!
