Innovation Early College High School- Nandini Vishwakarma
WITN Class of 2022
My name is Nandini Vishwakarma and I am originally from Uttar Pradesh, India. I moved here from New Zealand about eight years ago and started school right away. From the beginning of high school, I’ve known that I want to work towards a career in which I can interact with and help people. Additionally, I’ve always liked science, especially biology, so I decided to link the two and pursue a career in medicine. Other than that, I also enjoy learning new languages, different cultures, reading, writing, and painting. I hope to be able to travel a lot one day and that has been instilled in me through the many wonderful places I’ve seen already. I also want to build a career that I love and can put my entire being towards, and that is influential to humanity overall.
