Meet the Staff

Meet the Staff


Parth Thakkar

Sixteen-year-old Parth says he likes things to “always be changing.” For example, when asked if he could live anywhere, he says, “I’d like to move all over the world and never really ‘settle’ in one place.” But sometimes, he stays put—this is his third year on the Sex, Etc. staff! He originally decided to join the teen staff because “I wanted to be a voice for teens across the country who don’t necessarily have one when it comes to talking about sex, sexual health, relationships, etc.” Parth is also interested in public health, neuroscience, medicine and public policy. His hero is his mom. He says it may sound like a cliché, but his mother is one of his favorite people. She has given him lots of advice. Parth has made great contributions to Sex, Etc.; he’s excited for the coming year to see what changes come his way!
