Harriet Newhall Fellow

Parvathy Bhushan, class of 2017, is a Biology major. She is interested in pursuing a career in the interdisciplinary area of science and business. Apart from pursuing independent research in Professor Woodard's lab, she is Co-Chair of the South Asian Student Association and enjoys engaging with the Mount Holyoke community through senate meetings. As a junior, she studied abroad for a semester in London which has "widened [her] perspectives beyond imagination.” When asked what she likes most about Mount Holyoke, Parvathy replied, "It’s the bonds you form with people - knowing that there is always a community of strong, independent women supporting you in whatever endeavor you decide to undertake."
