Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a freshman at NU that likes to chill, watch movies, play video games, eat, and occasionally sleep.

Ever since high school, I've been really interested in viruses and just biology in general and have always wanted to talk about it. I know this sounds like another college application. But I know that many students in high school share my passion and want an informal way to learn about biology and voice their interest too. I've taught classes about computers and continue to teach my Indian parents about the common pronunciation of words in America. I love teaching kids and spreading my knowledge, after all it makes me feel smarter.

S67: Contemporary Medical Issues: The Story of AIDS in America in Splash 2011 (Apr. 02, 2011)
In this class, we will take a brief but illuminating look at the AIDS epidemic. We will examine what makes the HIV virus so deadly and hard to fight, we will examine how it first spread from a population of hundreds to millions, and the costly toll it has had on society. We will examine why it spread so quickly in the homosexual community of San Francisco. This class will also include discussions that will enable students to share their views on the most controversial aspects of the epidemic.
