Zsofia Kelemen

She is a big fan of music and culture, and often recalls a quote by Leonardo Bernstein: “To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not enough time”. Zsofia is still working on her plan, but one thing this past year has given is more than enough time, which is why she decided to jump into anything that is interesting and worthwhile. She firmly believes that education is the way to achieve progressive change in the world and is eager to gain as much hands-on experience as possible, so that when she does find a plan, time might be on her side.

Theresa Cariola

Rishiraj Sen

Rishiraj is finishing his Bachelors in English Literature from Gauhati University, India. In the future, he wants to be a professor or in academia full time as he thinks education can change things from the ground. His research interests are diverse but are connected by the ideas of social and climate justice, and basic human rights. He wants to be an advocate for the voices of marginalized communities and nations, and the downtrodden individuals subjugated through intersections of prejudice. He is a firm believer in the freedom of asking questions and feels without questions, there can be no answers. For him, personal is political and so, through anything he does, he wants to assert his agency. Other than that, he loves music, traveling, and above all, overthinking.
