Every time I visited India in the past, I felt amazed by the changes I saw within the country. However, to me, all of these changes seemed big and sudden, from one visit to the next. Never did they appear as a progression.
This time, when I go to India, I am looking forward to living and working there for an extended period of time. I hope to assist my NGO with their projects, to observe their work and participate in all that India offers. I wish to collect good stories, whether from other Fellows, co-workers or people I meet along the way. I want to create a narrative, for myself, of ten months in India and what this truly entails. From such stories, I think I might learn about India in a way that I never have before, and this thought is especially exciting for me.
I believe that my trip to India will be entirely new because of the work I will encounter and the relationships I hope to form. I look forward to hearing about experiences from other Fellows, and sharing my own. I am eager to learn more about public health and development in India with this new hands-on opportunity.
And so, my adventure hat is on. See you there!
