    Major: Biology
    Minors: Chemistry and Psychology

    I'm currently a second year medical student in St. George's University. I'm passionate about medical education both within medicine and outside of it to convey the beauty of the human body and what's the best we can do to live a healthy and long life. I practice veganism and would encourage people to learn more about plant-based foods, they're awesome! Besides that I enjoy power lifting, cooking and spending quality time with friends and family.

    Favorite Professor and Class

    Dr. Windelborn and his physiology lectures. Life changing!

    Fondest WC Memory

    Spending time with friends on various events I hosted for the college and attended.

    Let’s Hear It for the Liberal Arts

    Washington College pushed me out of my comfort zone. It wasn't easy matriculating in a small town Eastern Shore campus when you're from Mumbai, which is essentially the LA/NYC combo of India. So, I had to work for a lot of opportunities that were presented and learn skills to work with my peers but in the end it all worked out just fine!


    WAC is a great place to pursue education if you make it! The tight knit community will keep you close to professors, staff, and students which I cherish since I've met some of the most amazing people from WAC.
