My Travel Story

My name is Deepshika Verma. I am currently studying Public Health and International Affairs, hoping to promote sustainability in developing countries in the future through NGOs. I plan to work in a bi-partisan manner and am open to engaging with both sides of the political spectrum to achieve this feat.                      

I am planning on traveling to Glasgow and other nearby countries in January of 2018 for a whole semester to learn more about policy and healthcare, hoping to solve some major health crises through public administration.

One might ask:
“Why are you doing this and what can this opportunity do for you?”

The cliche answer would be that this experience allows me to expand my skill set and become more globally aware of issues that simply get ignored by the IR system.

The real answer is that this opportunity allows me to truly dig deeper into grassroots advocacy and to fight for healthcare/wellness from dominant to devloping countries. Having a passion for acting on major crises is what draws me halfway across the world to continue the journey in getting global forces to stand up and fight for rights of under-represented communities. So, it is not about what this opportunity can help me benefit from, it is about the benefit for others.

My overall goal is to become a healthcare specialist in the USA and work closely with other global communities in providing healthcare education for developing countries struggling to survive. This opportunity through the University of Glasgow to research/study abroad is the first step towards my end goals.

However, following my dreams has a cost that I simply cannot cover all on my own.
ANYTHING will help, and I truly appreciate you taking your time to read, donate, and share this page with others!
