PRIYA CHATWANI


Dance
I first started learning Bharatanatyam, a classical form of South Indian dance, in first grade. It was a large part of my childhood and middle and high school experience. It taught me how to work hard both individually and as a team member and how to be a mentor for others.

In high school, I enjoyed performing at relatives' weddings, whether it was a Bharatanatyam dance I had been taught or a choreography of my own. And in college, I was a proud member of the Stanford Bhangra team, where we achieved many "firsts" in terms of competition acceptances and awards!

Popcorn
I love spicing my popcorn in creative ways. This has become the most tangible way in which I have influenced all of my friends. I also love drinking tea. Here are some recommended spice (+ tea) combos:
You can also try mixing your popcorn with other snacks, like Takis, Doritos, Flamin Hot Cheetos, and Chex Mix, and you can try popping your popcorn with different types of oil, such as coconut, olive, sesame, sunflower, grapeseed, and ghee.

Travel
In the before times, I enjoyed traveling and have especially impactful memories from my summer interning in Bangalore and my quarter abroad in Santiago.
