Hsu joined a Christian club called the Navigators. On Easter, a member of Navigators hosted a barbeque at their apartment, and Hsu was able to catch up with everyone and enjoy time spent with her friends. Hsu came to know God during her undergraduate years when she was in Taiwan when one of her professors shared stories of the gospel during private lunch time. Only a small percentage of Taiwanese people are Christians, so her American Christian club is important to her.

Kapoor and his friends pose for a photo after a Holi celebration. During Holi, participants play with color, water balloons, water guns and gather with family and friends. Holi originally is celebrated to honor Lord Vishnu. The night before the color filled day, people gather to build a bonfire and perform rituals in front of it. In the Hindu mythologies, Hiranyakashipu, a king of demonic spirits demanded to be worshiped, but his son Prahlada went against him because of his devotion to Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu tried to kill his son, but Prahlada's life was said to be saved by Lord Vishnu.
