Swadesh Sistla

Advisory Board

Years with VT Seva: 5+ Years

About me: I am passionate about learning and creating.

Favorite Memory with VT Seva: The summer after my seventh grade, I visited the Allampally and Birsaipet schools for the underprivileged, as well as Netra Vidyalaya in Visakhapatnam. The weeks I was there were so impactful, as I not only got the chance to form long lasting relationships with my fellow volunteers, but I also learned so much about humility, dignity, and dedication from children much younger than I. It was truly a familial experience, to be called "Anna" or "Thammudu" by a sea of brothers and sisters I had made just days before, to get obliterated at the volleyball net or facilitate my favorite classroom word games, to eat the most bomb rasam rice I've ever had the pleasure to taste besides kids who consistently and unflinchingly put others before themselves. I hope one day to fully emulate the boys and girls from Allampally, Birsaipet, and Netra, and I know I'll be forever inspired by my unforgettable time with them.

Favorite Movie: The Dark Knight

Favorite Memory with VT Seva:

My favorite memory with VTS is from UTSAV 2019. The thrill of performing and being backstage, knowing that our efforts will be going towards a good cause at the end of the evening was motivating. Also it's an annual project and lots of us were anticipating a great show - which I believe it was. UTSAV 2019 will always be memorable to me because its the first UTSAV that I helped conduct and participated in!
