Deepika Kumawat ’24

Learning to ask questions

Deepika Kumawat ’24 has been finding opportunities to lead and build community, in and out of the classroom. A physics major with a Nexus in education policy and practice, Deepika is a teaching assistant for statistics and a Peer-Led Undergraduate Mentoring System (PLUMS) mentor for physics. She also serves on the 2024 class board, the Association of Women in Mathematics and Mount Holyoke Mock Trial, and will be the president of the First Generation and Low Income Partnership during the 2022–2023 academic year. Deepika’s best takeaway from her research experience is “whenever you go into a new field, you won’t know everything about it, and being open about what you know and don’t know is the best way to approach things.”
