Sanjana Rapeta is a third-year undergraduate student studying International Relations in the Sophia’s Program for Sustainable Futures (SPSF). Sanjana grew up with a multi-cultural identity in an international school in Japan. Here, she was supported by a diverse and supportive community, which allowed her to explore various interests such as volunteering for TASSEL (and later on the Sophia Refugee Support Group), starting and leading a law club, and exploring poetry. However, through learning critically about the state of the world, Sanjana found her passion in sustainability and international relations, where she could further explore social issues and global studies in an interdisciplinary manner.
Through UIF, Sanjana is looking forward to learning more about leadership, development and innovation. Sanjana wishes to help create solutions to understand and address various multi-national issues such as climate change, inequality, and refugee crisis, as well as further spread awareness and knowledge of sustainability in education.
