Global Challenge: Making Solar Energy Economical

Being a global leader is the same as being a responsible global citizen, someone who believes that every individual is equal and hence, deserves the same respect and resources as the person next to them.”


I am a sophomore majoring in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering with a minor in Finance. I am a math and chemistry enthusiast with a specific interest in the field of energy as well as cosmetics. While in high school, I completed year-long research in understanding the science behind natural cosmetics, which played a significant role in guiding me academically. I was born in India and have since lived in Oman, upstate NY, and Brooklyn currently. On-campus, I am a part of Alpha Omega Epsilon, a professional sorority for women in STEM, as well as the American Institute of Chemical Engineers at NYU. I also serve as the social media chair and staff writer for the Her Campus chapter at NYU. In my free time, I like playing badminton, writing poems, shopping, and walking the Brooklyn Bridge. A fun fact about me is that I recently started learning French, and spend a lot of time perfecting my pronunciations and preparing for my visit to Paris, where I hope to settle down later in life.
