Prianka Giridharadas joined us May of this year, and has been a incredible addition to our development team. Not only has she provided us support in areas like development research, event prep, and web writing, she has also been a joy to have around headquarters. Always a smile on her face, Prianka has been ready and willing to lend a hand wherever her skills are needed. Anyone would be lucky to have her on their team.

Let's learn a bit about Prianka, shall we?


Where are you from? 

Los Gatos, CA


What's your background / degree? 

Currently attending USC earning a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Architecture. 


Why did you want to intern at AFH? 

It was the perfect blend of my interests in architecture and sustainability, and my passion for volunteering. After reading about all the amazing programs AFH is involved in, I wanted to be able to contribute in any way possible!  


Where do you want to be in 15 years? 

Hopefully, starting my own company in San Francisco.  


What's your favorite AFH project? 

Football for Hope


A fun fact about yourself? 

My name means "loved one," and I have a birthmark shaped like a heart.


We love to eat at AFH!  What's your favorite food? 



Thanks for dedicating your time and sharing your design talent with us Prianka!
