One word to describe me would be diversity. Being born in India and coming to the United States at an early age has been a life changing experience for me. Initially, I came as a high school exchange student. That experience helped me in preparing myself for my challenging journey as an international student at Cleveland State University. During my years there as an undergrad, I engaged in many activities, starting from being a student government leader to taking up yoga classes. These opportunities matured me as a person and helped me in assimilating into another culture. I enjoyed sharing experiences with fellow students, both domestic and international.

After my undergraduate degree, I came to Findlay to pursue a graduate degree in environmental safety and occupational health management. Among all the places I have lived in the span of 6 years, I find Findlay to be the most harmonious place to live in. I’ve enjoyed attending campus events like Comedy Jam and movies sponsored by our student government. Participating in those events helped me in knowing our university and the students better. Apart from these activities, I appreciate the helpful nature of my professors who are willing to encourage me in turning my interest into reality. The international community at Findlay is very diverse and engaging.

Through this blog, I hope to serve as an informative bridge between international and our regular students as I share my experience as an international graduate student at UF.
