Well deserved spotlight, Aditya! Another thing people may not know about you is your unwavering dedication and leadership. As the Graduate Student Association International Student Chair, you have far exceeded any expectations that we had for this position and the impact it has had on our international and national student population. Your contributions to International Student Orientation Week and the Ambassador Program are exceptional and will be long-lasting on our UNMC campus. Congratulations!
