Peru Project Manager - Nihar Madhavan '15

Nihar is a sophomore hailing from the incredible city of Atlanta, GA and majoring in Mechanical Engineering, though he really wishes he could major in everything else too. He stumbled upon the EWB-Peru team sometime early freshman year and quickly made his life goal to "Save Babies in Perú!". He is extremely happy to have been an active member of the team as it has begun implementation of its project in Pitajaya, Peru as well as its on-campus efforts beating the other project teams in the EWB Project Olympics. When not actively seeking to "save babies", Nihar spends his time generally searching for all kinds of adventure in and out of the Orange Bubble.
