"When I see your light shine, I know I'm home."

How was India?

I have an incredibly difficult time putting into words the magnitude of my experience abroad. I've gained so much, and the past 8 months of my life have been a tremendous learning experience. I found so much beauty and depth in my time living in Hyderabad. The city inspired me, and so did the the community I found there. The Youtube video above is a condensed version of my world during my Global Citizen Year.

Endless gratitude and love for my beautiful host family, Niveditha Indrajit, Indrajit Rajmohan, and my little brother Vidhur.

To my Hyderabad angels, for holding me up, and being an incredible support system,, , I love you:

Inaara Habibo

Jack Swartzentruber

Luciana Ribeiro

Jaime Givens

Ashley Trejo

Momar Mboup

To my incredible team leaders, Fernadine Zandria Phanbuh, and Zooni, I love you.

I also want to shout out some other members of my community, who were so influential during my time in India, I'm so immensely thankful for you.
