A sense of place. Community. Roots. Some of us spend a lifetime trying to figure out where we’re from, who we are, where we belong. Oliver Wendell Holmes – the poet and physician whose son became a U.S. Supreme Court Justice – once wrote, “Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.” We hear from Ria Mirchandani about her fruitful search for a sense of home as she forges her path in life.
Ria Mirchandani is a senior at Brown University. She was born in Nashua, New Hampshire, raised in Mumbai, India, and has come of age in Providence.
