My inspiration to be a leader all started because of my past life as an immigrant from India. Starting from my own hometown, to moving to the Untied States, it was definitely a hard move to make! I was made fun of, there were so many cultural differences, and ultimately it was hard for me to make friends. When I joined the CSO Program, my elevator pitch goal was to spread by passion for STEM nationally and internationally, and by being a leader, I spread a small dosage of belief for kids who were just like me, and be a role model for those who didn’t have one. This is my motivation, to be a leader that inspires those around me.
