Sojas Wagle is an openly gay, Indian-American student at Brown University who hopes to eventually become a pediatric psychiatrist for at-risk LGBTQ+ youth. At Brown, he is an actor for Production Workshop, a nationally competitive slam poet, and of course, a cinephile. His love for film started as early as second grade, when he watched Slumdog Millionaire. He was mesmerized by how the film was able to combine a whimsical tale with an exposé of such somber issues. Some of his favorite films of the past decade include Boyhood, Call Me by Your Name, and Shoplifters. His fascination with film criticism stems from the intersection of two of his artistic passions: writing and cinema.
