I was born in the Western Indian city of Alwar in 2001. Since my parents are professors, our household always promoted learning, and intellectual curiosity almost felt like a given in my early life. After finishing my 11th-grade education, my parents were presented with an opportunity to ship me to the United States for further learning. They decided to take a leap of faith.

I arrived in the United States in 2017 at the age of sixteen, far removed from any understanding of western culture and life. Even though coming to a foreign land without my parents was a daunting task, I will never stop relishing the variety of options that I can take my life in this country.

For the last five years, I have sustained myself while navigating adult life, education, and future options simultaneously. Thus, I can guarantee one thing that I have brought to every situation: an immutable thirst to understand and know what I don't.
