Hello! My name is Pranav Saravanan, and I am a current junior at Dougherty Valley High School. As a young student, I remember always finding my passion in helping others in my community. I remember always helping my neighbors out in their yards and occasionally assisting my peers in assignments they didn’t understand—one of my favorite hobbies as a young student was volunteering in food pantries and shelters. Science has always intrigued me from a young age. Its revolutionary results and interesting systems have always piqued my interests. Especially the Medical Field. Medicine's various subjects and pathways fascinate me. During these times, many viruses have affected a major population of humans. These pathogens have weakened us. My dream is to live in a community with no pathogens to harm any living being. Due to this dream, I have always done Science Projects with the goal to erase pathogens from our world. I have created various projects to broadcast my passion for our environment.
