Celia Morton

Celia is passionate about languages, music and the outdoors. When growing up she spent most of her time outside in the tropical jungle of Costa Rica, if not playing the flute or singing. She is a UWC student involved in feminism, vegetarianism and overall social and sustainable development. In the future, she wants to work with the development of educational systems, as she sees them as the root of social change. Her goals for the year are to gain a deeper understanding of Indian culture and herself, become even more inspired to work with education, learn as much Hindi as possible, feel belonging in a place where she normally wouldn't and, very importantly, to make memories with people whom she will never forget. Her favourite quote of all time is: "Change is the only constant" by Heraclitus, as she sees is as undeniably true.
