Jhanvi Dasaka

I’m Jhanvi & I’m so excited to be a part of First Year Council! I’m studying Neuroscience and Philosophy on a pre-med track. Outside of SGB, I’m on the PR Committee of American Medical Student Association and a Dharma Chair for Hindu Student Council. I love doing yoga, reading, and cooking in my free time. I can’t wait to help make a positive difference at Pitt. H2P!
