Prateek Shetty – India Future Broncho Ambassador
Hey there! I am Prateek Shetty, and I graduated from UCO with a dual degree in forensic science and chemistry. I recently returned as a graduate student majoring in forensic chemistry. Coming to Oklahoma was the toughest decision I've ever made because I was used to staying with my family, but my time at Central shaped me into the person I am today. I have a podcast, "Randomrelatability," on Instagram. Feel free to check it out! I am thrilled to answer any questions about studying or life at Central. My interests include soccer, cricket and podcasting, and I am the programming manager at the International House.
