Born in Jaffna Sri Lanka, I was a part of the massive displacement that took place in 1995. Even though I was a toddler at the time the experiences of death, sorrow, fear, abandonment and immense hardships are still a fresh memory. As a consequence I have within me a deep sense of longing to assist and bring justice to the needy and victimized people of unfortunate circumstances. Therefore, International Studies is a field of education that appeals to me greatly.
