I am looking forward to the next ten months in India as a time to explore, learn, build relationships and do what I can to help others. There will be many challenges and opportunities, and it will be important to be flexible, resourceful, and to have a good sense of humor.
I am excited to get to know other fellows, people with whom I will be working, the community I am serving, and other people I meet on the journey. I love to learn from people, and what better way to feel more at home in a new place than by creating a new “family” of friends with whom you can have fun and lean on for support. I want to take time to explore Jaipur and enjoy all India has to offer. I am constantly in awe of the generosity and openness of people in India, and I hope that I am able to give something back.
I will give all I can in order to best help Digantar and the community it serves. These next ten months are an opportunity to reflect on what brings me personal and professional fulfillment and happiness, and I hope it will be a time of mutual learning and benefit.
