Savitri is a senior majoring in International Relations with a concentration in Political Science, and minoring in Chinese Language and Literature.

She is highly interested in the field of socio-economic development, particularly regarding women’s empowerment and labor rights in East Asia and Latin America. She is currently pursuing an Honors Thesis focused on Colombia’s armed conflict and female ex-guerrillas’ reintegration into society. Last summer, Savitri interned at the Clinton Foundation in New York, where she worked specifically at the Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership. This is an initiative dedicated to the creation and replication of social enterprises in emerging markets. At Wellesley, Savitri works as a student assistant in the Spanish department. She is also the president for the International Relations Council, and an active member of Slater International. After attending United World College in Hong Kong, Savitri would like to return to China to further her studies in Mandarin, and eventually become an international human rights lawyer.
