SAN FRANCISCO: It’s been a hectic year for Sri Muppidi. Wrapping up senior year, college applications, clarinet practice, graduation, with a trip to the United Nations, a visit to Oman on a cultural exchange program, and a Tanzanian expedition to install a water retention system thrown in to spice up the mix.

A student of Amador Valley High in Pleasanton, California, Muppidi has been aptly described as a powerhouse of energy. She is engaged in a number of service activities in school and the community.
