Today's puzzle is from Shreya
! Please join me in saying "wtf how on earth is this her FIRST puzzle???" Happy solving!
Shreya says: "I've always enjoyed solving crosswords but in the last year and a half it's gone from a casual hobby to the best part of my day. And now I'm dipping my toes into construction! A big thank you to Malaika for publishing my first ever puzzle, and I hope you'll see more from me in the future! As a fun aside, Malaika randomly assigned me this date and it happens to be both my grandpa's and grandma's birthday. The happiest of coincidences! So this one's dedicated to them."
