"My post graduation from The Energy Resource Institute (TERI) University in Sustainable Development Practices, helped me gain experience in the development, research, CSR and nonprofit sectors in six states of India. The intensive field work to conduct social science research in Uttarakhand, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat and Delhi made me develop an understanding of immersing in the society to assess and analyze needs of communities using participatory methods, an experience only TERI can provide. At the same time, our curriculum exposed me to several international organizations via my contributions to the youth division of UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network as a project officer. Through my engagement with SDSN-Y, I got an opportunity to work on the Human Rights Manifesto for COP21 held in Paris and was later selected as a Changemaker by UNEP. Thus, the course definitely prepared me to be a development practitioner who understands the field realities as well as the policy level narratives.It made me believe that we all can work towards ‘Sustainable Development’ regardless of differences in sex, occupation, race, culture or any other geographical boundary."
