My name is Nina Deoras. I am from Mumbai, India, and have lived all over the world. I am a rising sophomore majoring in Biology and minoring in Spanish. I really like singing and am part of two singing groups on campus: CU Glee Club and CU Sur, a south Asian a capella group. Aside from that, I am really interested in science and have been actively involved in research for a long time. In addition, I would love to learn a lot of languages. I am currently fluent in Hindi, Marathi, and English. I have been studying Spanish language for 10 years now and I would really like to be fluent in the language some day.
I moved to New York and immediately fell in love with it. It is such a diverse place that I love how, just by walking around, I can enter a variety of worlds. I am really fascinated with culture and I feel that our community and New York City have so much to offer, and I would love to explore it further. The different kind of foods that one can eat in New York is endless, and it is my goal to find the most obscure cuisine available in the city and eat it! I really loved my experience with the Constellation program last year and I want to continue exploring the milky way that is New York City.
