#247. July 27th, 2013: Priyanka Pardasani

When I think of a role model, or someone who truly lives life to their best ability, I immediately think of Priyanka. As I told her today over the phone, Pri is just so unbelievably real and down to earth. I honestly don’t know how to correctly describe her though, it’s too hard! She just has this unmatched energy and enthusiasm for living and it’s so freakin’ contagious. I love it. Pri just gives off this constant vibe of love and warmth and she has this gorgeous smile glued to her face when you see her. I think one of my favorite parts about her though is that she is never afraid to be truthful and to say it how it is. If there’s someone wrong, or if she’s upset, she’ll tell you. She won’t fake anything and she won’t try to sugarcoat her way through anything. She’s just so…present. She’s so in the moment. She’s just, alive! Like I said, it’s hard to explain it 🙂 Pri is also just an incredibly smart and talented young woman and I am so proud to be her friend 🙂 From the time when she stood up and gave that talk to us in the study room, to the countless times she’s made me laugh to tears, and to the way she’s supported my distracting rants about life and the TED Talks I’ve shown her, Pri has always been there to give me some amazing memories 🙂 One of my favorites, of course, was the time we spent hours until the early morning just talking about my desires and wishes at the time, and Pri, you know exactly what I’m talking about 🙂 Pri is just someone who truly listens and who really cares and who values and appreciates what she has in her life 🙂 And I’ll be the first to say that I value and appreciate her in my life sooooo much! 🙂 Pri, thank you so very much for being in my life and for opening my eyes up to the concept of such a true and spectacular friendship. Thank you so much for always having something exciting and fun to say and for always making all of us laugh and smile 🙂 Thank you so much for being so open with me through our many discussions and for listening to me all those times I babbled about him 🙂 Thank you so much for being such an influential, inspiring, and joyful human being who we are all so lucky to have in our lives 🙂 Thank you for being you 🙂
