We continue our series with Sri Lakshmi Goriparthi, from Hyderabad, India. She said the hardest adjustment she had to make was: "Accepting the truth about myself, my strengths, my weakness, my vulnerabilities and rendering the help and self love I need to evolve into this new person that I am, who is only much stronger, smarter, hardworking, confident, and kinder with her goals prioritized."

Best day on her calendar? "One of the many best days is May 23rd, where I delivered my commencement speech as a valedictorian addressing 8000 guests. It was the best feeling - being an international student and working my way up to be recognized and given that opportunity"

Where is the most interesting place you have been? "United States - it has introduced me to a NEW ME"

Fun Fact about you: "If you have a dog, you got a new friend - u like it or not" Sri, you are so right about this!
