Being born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, I was far from being a part of the Indian community. I then moved to Staten Island and went to Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, so my whole life was based in New York. For college, I desperately wanted to leave home, so I chose Rutgers because I aspire to be an Oral Surgeon, and they have a seven-year dental program. Second term freshman year was when I came in contact with the South Asian community, and after realizing what Iota Nu Delta was all about, I fit right in. I am an easy person to get along with and I love to hang out, so I always had a lot of friends, but it was not until I crossed IND that I realized what true friends were. Currently, I am attending Hunter College in NYC due to my parents' wishes.

I was born and raised in Berlin, New Jersey. At the age of 10, I moved to Marlton, New Jersey, where I still reside today. I graduated Cherokee High School in 2011. Currently, I am studying to become a Mechanical Engineer at the University of Rutgers. Growing up, I was always a math guy, and loved to solve problems and find multiple ways to a problem. I'm always up for new challenges and opportunities. I'm pretty laid back and I enjoy having a good time. My plans for the future include attending grad school and finding a well-established job as an engineer.

I was born and raised in Clifton, NJ. I graduated from Clifton High School in 2011. Love north jersey and how close my town is to New York City. I love traveling and seeing and learning about new places and always enjoy meeting new people. I came to Rutgers as a business school student because it runs in the family and because I'm good with numbers and math. Coming to Rutgers and meeting all these new people who have become life long friends is one of the best things that has happened to me. Pledging Iota Nu Delta and becoming a brother is something that I will always be proud of and has helped me get through a lot of problems, its something that I did not expect I would have done but then again the greatest surprises come when you least expect them.

Born in Passaic, NJ, a low socioeconomic, multifaceted city, I faced several adversities growing up. However I grew strong from them and created a mindset to help others from seeing all of the struggles people faced around me. My dreams thus lie in becoming a physician specifically a neurologist, so that I can put my skills to use and help out the community in one way or another. In my pastime though, I enjoy the creative arts (drawing, photoshopping, writing, etc,), working with music, playing video games, and just hanging out with my friends. When I first discovered Iota Nu Delta at Rutgers I knew I'd find where I belonged because it provided a way to impact the community as well as a niche where I could always fit in.
