Her Story

Sneha Wadhwani

Interdisciplinary Arts and Science program – McMaster University

Sneha's Story

My story begins in a small town in central India.

By some stroke of magic, my parents decided to sacrifice everything they knew, so that my sister and I could know better things.

My story rests in the hearts of those I have been able to touch.

Whether on a stage reciting poetry, sharing ideas in a classroom, or volunteering in the community, each time I share a piece of myself, I receive a piece of the world and more knowledge about my place in it. I am always discovering.

I have discovered that education means endless open doors, through my awe-inspiring teachers at Kenner.

I have discovered that beautiful things happen when a community comes together.

We can lift the voices of the marginalized, express and celebrate our identities through art, nurture our relationship with nature, find what inspires us and follow it.

I will be following what inspires me at McMaster University this fall through the interdisciplinary Arts and Science program, and pursuing a career in international medicine thereafter.

I am forever grateful for the contributions of Peterborough to my story, to every beautiful soul in this hidden treasure small town that is making their own discoveries.
