Sanjana Sunny Chandrasekar
Biggest Loser 14 Contestants
Sanjana "Sunny" Chandrasekar is a bright 16-year-old high schooler living in Rochester, New York. Sunny was born in Chennai, India by the time she was two years old she moved to Rochester, NY. After living in Rochester for four years, Sunny and her family moved to Melbourne, Australia then at age 13, her family moved back to Rochester.
Moving across the world more than once was stressful and took a tool on Sunny's health, which ultimately lead to her weight gain. Sunny feels her weight is holding her back from living a normal teenage life because it has diminished her self-confidence. Her weight has affected her ability to play tennis and confidence on stage while she is singing. "When I play tennis, my endurance level is not self-confidence and affects every part of life. When I have to sing or perform on stage, I feel as if people are judging me for my weight instead of my talent, and I often do not get the role that I want in school plays." she said.
Another issue Sunny faces with her weight is shopping. Sunny does not enjoy shopping like other teenage girls. When Sunny goes shopping it is hard for her to find clothes in her size. She is hopeful that the "Biggest Loser" will change her life for the better.
After the show, Sunny is excited to becoming a normal teenage with new self-confidence and going to her junior prom. Sunny will be able to buy clothes without worrying whether the store will have her size.
Sunny dreams of becoming a doctor after high school. "I want to leave for college having become the successful and confident person that I know I can be so that I can make a positive impact in the world."Next Prev Slide 3 / 18
