A letter changed my life. In fifth grade, I had the idea to write letters to build friendships and learn about other cultures. I wrote to a girl named Suma in Bangalore, India. We have been writing for over 8 years. Suma has inspired the creation of Go GIVE Global, a non-profit with the goals of promoting empathy and enhancing education. What started with a letter transformed into an international letter writing organization that strengthens the education of our partner schools through the use of technology.
I took a gap year to work at Facebook and intern for Ashoka before starting college. Currently, I am studying neuroscience at Princeton University.
