"Where do I begin? Well, it all began as I boarded my plane. I was very nervous to meet everyone and I asked myself repeatedly, “What if no one there likes me”, “What if they are all mean”, and even “Was my acceptance into the program a mistake”. Fortunately, to my dismay, when I arrived to the program I was welcomed with opened arms. As time progressed the program began to become more rigorous and challenging but at the same it seemed invigorating and serene. I encountered challenges with items such as the intensity of the research project and the 1,300 word simulation but I think what made it serene was the beautiful campus, friendly people, and the interactive environment. I had the most amazing time while in attendance at the YYGS’ SPI Program. It has taught more about life then I have ever known with its stimulating lectures and the seminars that made my mind delve into a deeper thinking. It has also exposed me to parts of life that I have never experienced. I got to witness different people’s cultures. I got to meet people from around the world and see mutliculturism and diversity become the forefront of the program. It has given me a moment in my life which I will take with me throughout my life and it has given me experiences that I will never forget. The people were very accepting of who I am as an individual and showed me that life gets better in the future. It taught me that not everyone is mean or cruel. It displayed that there are people out there who will love you for who you are and see passed any mistakes or imperfections you think you might have. This program is something I will never forget. I am very fortunate that I got selected into the Yale’s first Science, Policy, & Innovation Program for their Yale Young Global Scholars Program."
