Every person is amazing in some way if you take the time to get to know them. Aparna and her fiery mother are no exception. Aparna bravely came to the United States from India 16 years ago to get her PhD and raise her two children. She is now a tenured professor in the English department at CSU. Her mom now lives with her here in Fort Collins and just had her 89th birthday! She herself was married at the age of eight (!) and went on to become an actress in a time and place that did not look kindly upon that sort of thing. Thanks for letting me get to know a small part of your incredible story and take these photos!
