Pravalika is a senior and this is her second year on the Stampede. She is the managing editor this year.  She really enjoys listening to music to the point where she cannot leave the house without a pair of headphones. In her free time, she enjoys reading, playing the flute, cooking, and hanging out with friends. She may seem like a shy and quiet person at first, but once you get to know her you will find her to be a chatterbox.
