Meet the Class

Ananya Parimi

Where will you be in school next year?

Junior at Metea Valley H.S.

How many years have you been in S.C.A.R.F.?

2nd year

What made you want to join S.C.A.R.F.?

I want to help make a difference in my community by teaching and bringing awareness to the community about the true detriments of sudden cardiac death. Not only teach but be able to explore the medical world through the incredible mentorship of Dr. Nguyen and his staff. Also, SCARF provides a very unique experience to its students and exposes us to new perspectives in medicine that can be carried and passed on for a lifetime.

What are you hoping to get out of S.C.A.R.F. this year?

A lifetime of analytical learning, critical thinking, teamwork, and higher education that can be used even in the professional world and ultimately teach others about the positive attributes of hard work. This year, I would also like to find a way to connect SCARF and the Shedd aquarium because I believe that with the help of the aquarium and this mentorship program, our community can live healthier lives together.

What's a fun fact about you?

I am a 3rd year ambassador at the Shedd Aquarium and I have been playing piano for the past 6 years.
