Varshini Prakash is originally from Acton, MA. She is currently double majoring in Environmental Science with the College of Natural Sciences and Political Science through the Department of Political Science.

In the summer of 2013 Varshini put her advocacy efforts to work by marching 70 miles in six days for the Energy Exodus to promote the Cape Wind Project.
Varshini hopes her work with the Permaculture Committee will give her the tools and support to raise awareness of environmental issues in her community and beyond. In her free time, Varshini enjoys singing loudly, youtubing, and recycling.
