Why did you become a mentor: As an international student myself I know how difficult it can be completely uprooting your life and moving to a new country. As a mentor I want to help international students have a great first year and succeed here at IUPUI.

Bio: I am originally from India but grew up in Dubai. I joined IUPUI in 2016 and have been a part of IPMP since last year. I was a mentee initially as well! I've loved the last 3 years at IUPUI, I've gotten to know the campus so much more. This is my last year here and I want to make the most of it through everything our campus has to offer. Hopefully IPMP will be a big part of that. :)

Favorite spot on campus: University library

Favorite thing about IUPUI: How close it is to downtown and the canal!!

Some life advice: Don't be afraid to speak up :)
