I attended Mahindra United World College of India through the Canadian UWC National Committee. It was hands down the most incredible experience of my life. It pushed me to see the world, myself and my own capabilities far beyond what I new possible. What truly makes UWC unique is the community as everyone on campus has made a huge effort as well as sacrifice to be there and they care about making the world a better place one individual at a time. The part that stands out most to me about my experience with UWC was a program called "triveni" which enabled students to identify problems in the world around them, be it at a campus, local or global level and come together to develop projects to address those problems. I was involved with starting a women's empowerment initiative and served with the fire and rescue service aiming to protect the nearby bio-reserve from wildfires. Both experiences taught me enormously and they were great fun!
