Being raised in Shanghai has caused me to become very aware of the many environmental issues that constantly arise along with development. At the international school that I attended, I participated in various charity events that supported sustainability and even set up my own project to raise awareness for different problems, such as food waste, that people don’t often think of. Being involved in a unique project like this in India, is a whole new experience in a part of the world that I’ve never visited and that I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of.
