ESSEX—Mareisha Banga has combined her love for science and art into a painting, titled: Restoring the Reef, that has been chosen as a semifinalist for an international art challenge; Science Without Borders. The Avenue News reached out to Banga to learn more about her and her art work and how she is continuing her creative passions and projects despite schools being closed for the rest of the academic year.
