It is never too young to begin to mutiny. Today I would like to introduce SM readers to two graduating high school seniors who are going to be guest blogging here for just the next two weeks (because school starts soon!). Here are their bios in their own words [with additions by me]
Radhika is an 18 year-old high school graduate from Houston, TX about to start at American University in Washington, DC. She is an aspiring double major in Journalism & another subject that will make her thoroughly unemployable, she also plans on saving the world [to me this means she's on the five year track]. She is currently completing a 2 month internship with Sewa International Houston, a nonprofit organization that seeks to empower refugees & low-income communities. Radhika enjoys dorm shopping [I miss dorm shopping] , fighting injustice, and traveling. You can contact her/criticize her/crush her self-esteem at radram at gmail dot com [be nice people].
Andrew is a student at The Ohio State University [forgive him, please], studying to be a doctor (apparently like everyone else in his family). Having grown up in the not-so-diverse Midwest, it is only recently that he has rediscovered his roots and has been overwhelmingly drawn to the enigma of South Asia. He hopes to become more involved with Desi American and Asian American organizations, whether it be a Bollywood dancing troupe [we will provide a Youtube clip after he dances] or activism for Asian American media representation.
Readers please be gentle. These are young minds. Only with proper encouragement will they mutiny right.
