Van Nuys, CA
To Parth, integrity is the ability to stand your ground and fight against injustice even when you are all alone in doing so. Drawing on President Reagan’s stand against the Red Scare in Hollywood, Parth founded a nonprofit to address the Indian water pollution crisis. His organization, Pre-Med Ed, has brought clean water to hundreds of remote Indian villages. A volleyball player, debate team captain, and biology and math expert for the science bowl, Parth has already been embedded into the research communities at UCLA, Stanford, and Cal State Northridge. In addition to serving as president of his nonprofit, he has volunteered hundreds of hours for two hospitals and numerous other organizations. From Van Nuys, California, Parth will attend Dartmouth College to major in neuroscience.
