Born in the southern-most state of India and with my father being in the Air Force, I spent the first decade of my life crisscrossing this giant, diverse country, being exposed to a rich variety of cultures. However, a chance job offer sent my family on our biggest move yet across the world to America. I was only eleven then and life has been nothing short of living a dream since. I was very fortunate to receive an enriching education at the University of Delaware where I was able to study Biology, Political Science and Liberal Arts on campus as well as abroad in Brazil and Ghana. Post-graduation, I spent a year working on a campaign to bring solar energy to un-electrified villages in India. Realizing my passion for global health, I came back to medical school eager to learn a valuable skill-set that will help me follow my dreams.
