My name is Nita Pedavalli, and I’ll be an SI Leader for Chemistry 1300. I am a neuroscience major on the premed track in the BS/DO program. I chose SI because I am passionate about teaching in addition to my passion for science and medicine. I wanted an opportunity to combine my interests and apply them in a way that helps other people and to be able to provide guidance to all students, but especially to struggling ones. I am part of many clubs on campus including Pre-Med Society, Pre-SOMA, and American Red Cross. I am also part of the e-board for RESULTS, She’s the First, and Neuroscience club. A few fun facts about me are that I am a massive Marvel fan, I love to cook, and my favorite TV shows are Parks and Recreation, Criminal Minds, and Grey’s Anatomy.
