Shruti Desai, 1GLI

My Story

headshot of Shruti DesaiI grew up in the great city of Atlanta to immigrant parents from India. We didn’t find the Indian stereotype of doctors who had significant amounts of money or multiple degrees. My parents taught me the value of making a dollar. I went to a school that gave me the largest scholarship and made a choice to go into a field that didn’t pay the most amount of money, but it gave me joy.
