Puravi (she/her/hers) is a fourth year from Kolkata and Bangalore, India, majoring in psychology. She’s interested in the field of advertising and consumer psychology, and wants to be a brand planner in the future. She is absolutely thrilled to be on the ISO cabinet and wants to support the ISO community in any and every way possible. “I really want to hear you and know you. Please know that I am here for every one of you.” Puravi believes that ISO should be a complete safe space for everybody and a platform for voices, diversity, understanding, support, solidarity, love, and celebration of and for every member of ISO. Her favorite events at Grinnell are Bollywood Gardner and Food Bazaar. Her favorite place downtown is probably Saint’s Rest because it has a relaxed vibe with really cool artwork and amazing iced/hot mocha! Puravi has previously served on the ISO and South Asian Student Organization (SASO) cabinet and is currently an IPOP mentor. She has also been involved on campus as a psychology tutor, student senator, cultural attaché, and has worked closely with International Student Admissions, All Campus Events committee, The Grinnell Press, and as a photographer for The Scarlet & Black and a local Iowan band. She’d love to answer any questions you have!
