my name is Emma. I am really excited and nervous for this experience, living in Auroville. I am interested in studying abroad in an ecovillage because the typical abroad program left me wanting more. I have been frustrated with traditional education systems in the US-like college, and most recently took a semester off from school all together. This opportunity to travel to India has come at the perfect time in my life because while I love to learn, I've been burnt out by the more strict education experiences I have had. I took the semester off to focus on my music, I recently recorded my first CD. I am nervous to walk away from all the progress I have made, but on the other hand I am excited to be able to have this experience to share with others. And hopefully will inspire some songwriting.
I am most excited to cultivate my own personal sustainability and to have the opportunity to do yoga and meditate. And to live in a dynamic community where people are working together toward a goal, or a better way of life, rather than not even knowing your neighbors.
I know I have a lot to learn about so many different things-but I am eager to begin this adventure with an open mind, and to learn more than i can imagine along the way.
