Neerali Patel, a graduate of N.C. State, received a B.S. in Biology and is now at UNC Chapel Hill for her Masters in Public Health. She chose this career path because she believed that Public Health gave her the opportunity to engage in various aspects of the medical profession, without being “right or wrong,” and because everything is equally relevant to people’s everyday lives and the planet. This field’s purpose drives her to change the world. Currently, she is interning at Carolinas Healthcare System's headquarters in Charlotte, with the Innovation Engine which is basically a small team that does strategic internal consulting for system. Besides dancing, she loves to spend time with my family and friends, write, and read/watch Harry Potter.
Amita Batra, a student at UT Austin, is studying to become a mechanical engineer. She chose this major because she finds it interesting and allows her to continuously think outside of the box to solve problems. She also loves the fact that she is following in her father’s footsteps and can relate to his inspiring journey. This summer, she is currently interning for Chevron, in the downtown Houston office, and is working on a short film with her best friend. A few things to know about Amita is that she enjoys jamming out to music in her car, she sometimes pretends to be a superstar singer, and really likes cooking and plating dishes to look like pieces of art.
Nina “Ballerina” Gupta, a rising senior at George Mason University, is currently working towards a degree in Economics and a career as a corporate lawyer. She loves traveling the world, being outdoors, and spending time on the water, whether it is just sitting on a boat or racing around on jet skis. Though she enjoys all these other activities, her true passion lies in dance. Her life is very intertwined with dance and her story is truly unique to her.
