Oh man, where to start? I met Radhika years ago through Indian classical dancing and continued to become really good friends with her through more dance but more importantly from being fellow engineers in both SWE and AOE at the University of Virginia. One of my first true experiences at UVA was when I went for a High School Visitation program and stayed with Radhika overnight to get a real feel of what college life was like living in a dorm. This girl has been the one that I’ve gone to for advice on everything college related and one of my role models in college. She’s always been the one in Wilsdorf Cafe that will greet me with the best hug and huge smile. You’ll see why her smile always brightened up my day.

Had to take some pictures near the Civil Engineering sign of course!

These are probably my favorite. She got up on the wall and just looked like she was on top of the world/E-way.

So cute πŸ™‚

Radhika, you are gorgeous and I’m going to remember this day of taking pictures with you for so many years to come. I am going to miss you so very much over the next couple of years as you take on grad school but please come back and visit me and everyone else in our Holi dance group (I refuse to use the designated name).
