Vadsaria was raised in a house with her grandfather, parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city until she was six, when she moved to Chicago. Although growing up in Karachi was fun for her, Vadsaria wrote on her personal website that she loved Chicago, especially for her school experience there. What sold her to life in the Windy City?  Apparently, "the crayons, construction paper and glue" that she didn't have at her previous school.
