Meet Yashvi Tibrewal: a freshman who has learned to make the most out of life and not care what others think by making balloon animals.

This is the first installment of a brand new web series presented by the Daily Nexus, entitled Somewhere In Between. Join us as we go throughout UCSB and Isla Vista to find out the stories of some of the most interesting members of our community, and how they ended up where they are now. College may be seen as the period of life in between adolescence and adulthood, and we want to figure out where people feel most at “home” here at UCSB.

If you come from a unique background and would like to be featured in this series, please reach out to
We are open to any and everyone’s stories!
