How I Can Help

Hi! My name is Shanthi and I use she/her pronouns. I am a junior from Palo Alto, CA, majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Medical Humanities. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, painting, and pottery, as well as going antique/vintage shopping with my friends and playing with my dog, Clifford.
