Short Bio

I was born and raised in the Silicon Valley Bay Area in 1998. After having been there my entire life, I craved a college experience that would help me grow the most, and growth is most apparent when we place ourselves in unfamiliar environments. As a result, I chose to attend Boston University, where I am now studying Marketing and Management Information Systems, hoping to work in the midst of data, analytics, and tech one day.

Asian American Donor Program
For those with blood cancers, disorders, or diseases, a bone marrow transplant is the only cure. A patient would find their best match in a donor of the same ethnicity as them, thus resulting in a successful transplant relying heavily on race. Unfortunately, there are very few minorities registered in the National Donor Registry, decreasing the chance of a minority patient finding a cure. I work as an Outreach Director, reaching out to events and organizations to hold bone marrow drives, as well as drive AADP's marketing efforts.
DECA is an international business conference for high schoolers and collegiate students. I started participating in these competitions my junior year of high school. During my time as a part of DECA, I placed 2nd out of 20,000 competitors worldwide for creating an intricate business plan for a hypothetical product, and placed top 10 out of 10,500 international competitors for creating the best plan to increase the marketing efforts of a nonprofit organization in the community.

I have been dancing ever since I was 3 years old, and when coming to college, I was very excited to see that Boston University had a competitive bollywood dance team. I auditioned, made it onto the team, and eventually became captain. It was one of the biggest learning experiences and some of the most fun I've had in college.
