“Squash is a unique sport,” says Meherazade Sumariwalla ’12, captain of Wesleyan Women’s Varsity Squash. “It’s both a team and an individual competition—but we are always a team. We are there for each other and we put the team’s interest above our own.”
A biology and economics major, Sumariwalla’s life moves at the speed of a squash ball. She has worked in Professor Stephen Devoto’s zebrafish laboratory and served this semester as a WSA representative, a resident adviser, a Cardinal Key tour guide for the admission office, and an interviewer for staff and student positions in the office of residential life.
“I’m most productive when I’m busy,” she explains, adding that this semester she has choreographed a piece for Precision, a student-run dance troupe. She also considers a course on the human brain one of her recent favorites and notes that grad school in the sciences is one post-Commencement plan she is considering.
