Favorite aspect about Brookhaven College: My favorite thing about Brookhaven College is the diversity between students and faculty. I know that without attending Brookhaven I would not have met the kinds of people from all around the world like I have. I can be myself and people don't judge me, but what I love more is that just when you think you know most of the student body, you don't. At Brookhaven, I am consistently meeting new people, developing relationships and networking, and I love that.

Hometown: Kerala, India
Community Involvement: Phi Theta Kappa, Big Bear Little Bear and Church Choir/Band
Favorite aspect about Brookhaven College: Brookhaven is a place where I found myself being comfortable with people that push me to get out of my comfort zones and embrace who I really am. The Ambassador program in itself is shaping me into someone with so much potential. Not only because of the networking skills and servant leadership opportunities that it provides me with, but all the because of the amazing group of leaders and best friends I get to work with. These people are not only my best friends but over time and experiences that we have gone through, we became a family. We all are always there for each other no matter what. I could go on and on about our daily lives together. However, I am so thankful from the bottom of my heart (my heart is very deep lol) to Brookhaven for the program but most of all thankful to God for putting us together.
