It was amazing meeting all the graduate school representative and I really got the opportunity to interact with a few and form connections for the future.
I Received the Hubert Scholarship to go to a different country and work with an NGO regarding health issues of a certain area and analyze the situation through the lens of an economist with respect to the humanitarian goals of the entire project.
I had worked with the NGO "Association for Social and Health Advancements" (ASHA) previously on menstrual hygiene and prduct management of cost efficient pads in rural parts of West Bengal. So this summer as well I wanted to work with them in much more depth on how worsening health conditions lead to changes in their total income and day to day savings. Hubert scholarship provided by our college fit perfectly with the goals of the project and also provided me with funds that I could use for broadening my horizons and working more efficiently with the Ngo. I got the opportunity to go back to my birthplace - Murshidabad (West Bengal, India )and stay in the villages and work with the people directly. I not only got the chance to talk to the people but also got to analyze the different roles and responsibilities of the government bodies and other decision makers of society that impact the lives of these people. It truly gave me the hands on field experience to thoroughly understand the complexity of problems that the poorest of poorest face in these area. It was an eye opening experience and I am glad I got the chance to make a small difference and bring about certain change agents in their society.
My friend and I from Agnes Scott College attended the Walkathon at the BAPS temple in Lilburn, GA. We were walking to raise funds and support the nature conservancy's goal of planting a billion trees by the year 2040.
