Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?

UCI has such a beautiful, expansive campus full of gorgeous scenery! I love being able to take walks around Aldrich park, or just being able to sit down and take a breath of fresh air between classes. The warm community at UCI has made me feel so welcome and gives us so many opportunities to meet new people and make the most out of our college experience!

How can you be a successful Anteater?

To be a successful Anteater, you need to be open to stepping out of your comfort zone, whether this is to meet new people or to experience new opportunities that come your way. Don’t be afraid to try new things – make your time at UCI worth it!

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I moved around a lot as a child – I’ve lived in multiple cities in the Bay Area, South India (more specifically Chennai, India), and now live in SoCal!
