Why did you become a mentor: I decided to join IPMP this semester because I felt like I could use my experiences as an international student to help new incoming students and provide them with the assistance and the resources to succeed during their time at IUPUI.

Bio: I was born and raised in India until 8th grade when due to my parent’s job we had to move around to different countries every few years. I have always enjoyed meeting people from different countries and learning more about their culture. I decided to pursue engineering at IUPUI and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. I love the campus and the community here and I am always looking for ways to be more involved on campus. I’m not always the most outgoing person but I can talk for hours with people that are close to me.

Favorite spot on campus:Chick-fil-A

Favorite thing about IUPUI: I love the urban setting of the campus as it gives me the opportunity to live in and explore Indy.
