Upbeat Friends

“This is about three of my good friends from high school, Maanav, Nivedhan, and Aiyappa. Every year since I’ve come to UVA, my friends have driven to the airport to drop me off every year. Though it was a fun drive for them, I really loved it was because my parents were always very sad when I left. Maanav, Nivedhan, and Aiyappa would be very upbeat and crack jokes and my parents would be much more lighthearted than they usually were. I thought that was very sweet, and they’ve done this for all four years.” - Shreyas Hariharan
