Hello! I'm so glad you're here! It's Saaya and I am currently 16 years old and live in the town of Holden, Massachusetts. I am Indian American and I love growing up in a household that is a mix of both American and Indian values and traditions. I've been lucky enough to travel to India a few times in my life and the memories I have made there are some of the most treasured ones I have. Back in the US, I love spending time with friends, eating blueberry ice cream with chocolate sprinkles, and skiing. My favorite color varies depending on the day and my favorite animal has always been an elephant. And that's a little bit about me!
My family is made up of me, my mom, my dad, and my two little sisters named Ekaavli and Anjali. Ekaavli, the middle sister, loves playing basketball and soccer. Anjali, the littlest of us, became quite the baker during quarantine. Together, the three of us love cooking with one another and putting on shows for our family. I have been so lucky to grow up in a crazy loud family with lots of cousins by my side. Throughout everything, my family has been incredibly supportive and I am so grateful.
For me, getting accepted into MAMS was the most amazing surprise and blessing all wrapped into one. Though I have only been here a few weeks I have already made so many new friends and been exposed to many new things I never would have learned otherwise. At MAMS, I love getting to learn as much from my classmates as I learn from my teachers and the collaborative nature of this school. I'm so grateful to be here and I can't wait to see what awaits me this year!
