I am a freshman at Drexel University studying psychology. My goal is to become a psychotherapist, working in low-income areas with at-risk students. I am a part of Drexel’s Peer Counseling Helpline. Mental health has been an avid passion of mine. Growing up in the Bay Area, in California, I witnessed the impact high-pressure societies have on mental health. I moved to the United States from India at a young age, and I am dedicated to reducing the stigma of mental illnesses among Asian immigrant populations. I love poetry, puppies, and Pinterest, and I am very excited to partner with JED on the Student Advisory Council!
