Nithika will graduate Ohio State with dual specializations in business administration, and is currently exploring how marketing and sustainability can integrate to create positive change within businesses and their surrounding communities. In her free time, Nithika enjoys exploring Columbus, adding plants to her succulent family, and tasting new flavors at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. She's also interested in watching interesting TED Talks, reading thrillers/mystery books, and listening to intriguing podcasts. She loves meeting new people, so feel free to reach out to grab coffee sometime!
