Here is her appeal:
"I’m Sohini Bhashya, a 19 years old student from India, studying Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University College of Groningen in the Netherlands. I am grateful to have this opportunity to study here and without the support of many well wishers this was almost impossible to imagine. Therefore, I would like to kindly ask for your financial support to continue my education for next year. Let me tell you a bit about myself: I was brought up and educated in a school founded by J. Krishnamurti in India as well as another in the UK, I was fortunate enough to be exposed to an inquiring and open-ended learning environment where academic subjects are taught relating to all aspects of life and a great emphasis is given on self-knowledge and psychological well-being. Growing up in these schools helped me to develop a sensitivity towards earth, nature and all its inhabitants. I also understood that learning is an ongoing living process where all important aspects of one’s personality, including emotional, spiritual and physical, are involved. I love the concept of studying Liberal Arts & Sciences which gives me a wide scope to explore various fields of knowledge and gradually move in the direction of specialization. I see the great value of interdisciplinary studies to develop a more comprehensive and holistic outlook in meeting the global challenges facing humanity. Your generous support will help me to continue my educational adventure in the Netherlands and my deep wish to be academically equipped to conserve our planet, as well as to help the people around me."
