As 2007 Presidential Scholar Shaan wrote –“ I’m one of the few Las Vegas natives roaming this earth. Although I do not live in a casino as many speculate, I do carry around an oversized buffet plate with me, not of food, but of activities! Outside of that though I am just like every other vegetarian Indian kid who’s grown up in a motel and loves to discuss Vedic philosophy. The accomplishment I am most proud of does not come with a laminated gold certificate: the growth of my character and mind over the past four years. After living in my dad’s rundown motel and attending urban public schools, I have engendered a unique appreciation for diversity that I am most fulfilled by. Oh, and I couldn’t go east for college because I have a strong affinity towards the LA Lakers and animal fries from Inn-N-Out!“
Accepted to numerous prestigious universities with over quarter-million dollars in scholarship, Shaan joined USC with intention of becoming a Physician. With ongoing shift in economics of medical care Shaan has decided to peruse business world as well.
