Meet Ishita Arfin!

She graduated from USF in 2018 with a degree in Health Science. Ishita is now in grad school and is working towards her degree in physical therapy. Ishita may be a hard-working medical student but she doesn’t limit herself to one dream. The ambitious student also grew up dancing to Bharatnatyam – Bengali style, Bollywood, and Bhangra, all different types of South Asian dances. Ishita also wants to start a small business to spread her cultural background to the world.

My favorite restaurant in Lake Nona would have to be Canvas! I absolutely love the atmosphere.

I honestly don’t know what would make Lake Nona better … it’s just the best city I’ve ever lived in!!! So interactive and friendly.
