Mahathi Venkatesh lives in Ohio and was born in 2000.
I am a seventh grader and a member of Student council and Power of the Pen. My favorite subjects are Social Studies and Science. My other interests include drawing, reading, traveling, skiing, snowboarding, and bird-watching in my tree house. I have won awards for my artwork in the Earth Day Coalition contest. Music is very important to me, and I play the clarinet and piano. I am a big fan of Taylor Swift. I strive to preserve my Indian culture by dancing. I perform Bharathanatyam, an Indian classical dance, and Poikkal Kuthirai and Karagattam, Indian folk dances. I have been inspired to serve in the health career field in my future after attending the Health Careers Initiative Camp for the past few years. I would also like to become an ornithologist.
