My name is Vibha Shetiya. I was born in Bombay but moved to Luanshya, Zambia, when I was a year old. I returned to India with my parents as a teenager and then came to the United States for grad school in 1999. Having lived in Kansas, Texas and then New Mexico, Pittsburgh is the farthest East I’ve lived in the US, so it’s almost like I’m now in a different country! I love that it’s difficult for me to pin-point where exactly I’m from (although it was rather confusing as a teenager, I’ll admit that much :) – I just say I’m a citizen of the world!
