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.
Before studying computer science at Princeton University, I am taking a gap year to work at Facebook and intern for Ashoka. Currently, I am serving on advisory boards to Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation and Ashoka's Youth Venture. I am also continuing my work with Go GIVE Global, as always.
