My name is Aveen Sharma and I am a current student at Adler University in Chicago. I am studying to be a counselor with a specialization in rehabilitation counseling. While I am enjoying my current studies I hope to further education in a future doctoral program. I enjoy playing tennis and my viola in my spare time. One of my favorite parts about Chicago is the summer when everyone is enjoying the outdoors.
