I was born in India and moved to the states when I was 7. I did a different school grade in a different state until I got to high school in York, PA. I later moved to Pittsburgh for undergrad and then ended up in New York for medical school. In my free time I love doing outdoor activities, dancing, listening to music, cooking, and of course binge watching Netflix.
