Alumni Spotlight: Manasi Nawathe pursuing her interests at Johns Hopkins

After graduating from North Penn in 2018, Manasi Nawathe continues to prioritize getting involved as a freshman at Johns Hopkins University. During her time at North Penn, she was involved in Model UN, played the viola in the orchestra, was inducted in NHS, and served as the Vice President of the Spanish Honor Society. Outside of school, she did Indian Classical dance.

Now, she is currently majoring in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and hopes to minor in Spanish. She’s involved in JHU Josh, the women’s Bollywood fusion dance team, and is a dais member for JHUMUNC, Hopkins’ high school Model UN conference.

As for her future, she plans to get involved with cell and tissue research and eventually work at NIH.

Favorite part about college:

“I really enjoy having the freedom to structure my schedule the way I want it to be. It gives me time to balance my work and my extracurriculars, as well as attend all the events we have around campus!”

What do you miss about North Penn?

“I miss the relationships that we could form with teachers and other students in the class. Because classes here only meet 2-3 times a week and only for about 12 weeks, it’s hard to get to know other students in your classes and your professors. I also really miss senior year and making some great memories with friends!”

Advice to High Schoolers:

“I actually have two pieces of advice for students. The first: the best thing you can do for yourself to succeed in classes is to learn what kind of note taking works for you. It’s the best way to study and to really understand the material. The second: in high school, it’s really easy to fall into the trap of being defined by your test scores and grades rather than your unique personality, so try and stay positive!”
