Currently, I live with my parents and brother in Boylston, Massachusetts. However, my brother is now a sophomore at the University of California Berkeley, so it’s just my parents and me for most of the year. My parents are both from Andhra Pradesh, a South-Indian state, so we speak Telugu at home. Because of this, my family and I have gone to India every summer for as long as I remember. The love that my parents share for science and technology has given me a lot of exposure to the expansive world of STEM and enabled me to attend Mass Academy so that I could further my experiences. Without my family, I would not be where I am today, and they are a huge part of what shaped me into the person I am!
