During my two and a half months here I have had the opportunity to learn about the gender disparity in education in India, to interview and photograph EG employees, rural families, students, and their surroundings. I have been welcomed into villages and homes like I was family, even though I was a stranger. I have been challenged to understand the feelings and struggles spoken in a village language, then translated into Hindi, then roughly into English, all while the original message was loaded with a culture and context very different from my own and perhaps impossible to express into words. I came to India with the plan of helping others, but I feel the people here have given and taught me more than I can repay.
