Over the years Nerds have gone from being the butt of jokes to become main stream, even Cool.  

Looking at the intersection of smarts and creativity, NerdCool explores Dhaya Lakshminarayanan’s journey, from an Indian girl raised in the American South, to MIT graduate who then left the tech world to become a comedian. Set against the backdrop of today’s social and political climate, we learn through laughs, and struggles, what it means to persevere as yet another ‘ Other ’ in America.  

Dhaya is a comic in the San Francisco bay area. Learn more about her performances at Dhaya Comedy.
