About Me

Hi, I'm Sindhu Raghavan and I am a UL Diversity Fellow 2008-09.

I am starting my senior year at IUPUI pursuing degrees in psychology and economics.

I am from Chennai, India where I finished high school before coming to IUPUI as an international student. I have lived in Saudi Arabia for seven years as a child, which was my first experience with a world outside of my own country and culture.

Hi, my name is Ashley Mack and I am a Diversity Fellow with the University Library. I am an Indianapolis native and a junior, creative writing major at IUPUI. I am also a Resource Mentor with the Bepko Learning Center in University College. I transferred from Howard University in Washington, DC and this is my second year at IUPUI. My two main joys in life are education and writing. I have worked with students from pre-K to 12th grade and have enjoyed working in many different educational capacities. My poetry has also been published in several collections including Drumvoices Revue and the fall 2007 edition of Genesis, IUPUI's literary journal.
