My name is Prabhjyot Arora and my preferred pronouns are she/her. I am an international student currently studying BA in Environmental Studies (policy concentration) at the University of Alberta and also pursuing a Certificate in Sustainability. I am multi-lingual and I speak Engish,French,Hindi and Nigerian Pidgin. I recently graduated from a United World College (UWC). Students come from over 100 countries of the world to one high school and bring with them different cultures, beliefs and values. They come together to live the UWC mission, which is, UWC is a global education movement that makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. I got first-hand knowledge of tensions that exist between different nations. The diversity and extent of these tensions and people’s perspectives on them made me realize how each one of us needs to work together for peace and a sustainable future. Collaboration is especially crucial for global problems that do not respect national boundaries. My long-term goal is to start my project in Edmonton and expand the green network by means of snowballing.
