Chaitali Dave was born in India, grew up in Zambia and moved to the United States when she was 12 years old.
"I like to read a lot. When I moved to the U.S., I didn't know anybody, so I sort of became an introvert and started reading a lot. That's when I really learned that I love to read."
Chaitali works for Phillips 66 and enjoys volunteering through the Junior Achievement program. She has taught first, second and fourth graders. "I have always enjoyed working with kids and volunteering with the companies that I have worked for," she said.
