As an ICT professional and social campaigner, I have attended the International Youth Summer School 2005 in India.

I’m extremely thankful to the British Council for selecting to attend the International Youth Summer School 2005 in India. One can always be ecstatic by remembering splendid times. Those six days at the summer school has been fabulous. At the very first day, the feeling of shyness and awkwardness was lost as the Welcome speech was fascinating and friendly. Shuffling of the seats among the participants created a different environment and talking with a new face and making friends began from the very moment.

During different sessions, I got the opportunities to learn about many new things, and the sessions were never boring as we used to play in between the sessions. As my theme was “Peace and Conflict Resolution” I could know about the different problems and different conflict around the world and how people are working to eradicate those problems. This session inspired me to do social works and help other people. During sessions, I came to know that many students were working as Volunteers works. I had this concept that doing Volunteer work is useless as we don’t get any money, but now I’ve realized that I was totally wrong.

During the theme session and voices session, I could build up my confidence, and I learned about the presentation skills too. Similarly, because of the skill session, I can now make my own Puppet, and I’m confident that I can do a small Puppetry show and convey a different message to people. The message may be of HIV AIDS, safe sex, use of condoms, eliminate prostitution, education is essential for girls too etc.

I’m thrilled that summer school provided us with the forum to show our culture and values among such a huge mass. I was so nervous thinking about the Presentation, but the whole environment over there made us so comfortable that we could do our presentation nicely and successfully. It was astounding to know that people from other countries were interested in our country’s current situation.

During those six days, I came to know about different cultures of people from other countries. I came to know about their living style, their thinking style and could learn new things even when we were talking or eating. I had never travelled alone before, but now I’m confident that in future I can travel alone.

Summer School not only helped me to enhance my skills and confidence but also changed my thinking style and my life. Hence, I feel that more people from Nepal should get this opportunity in their life because many people in our country hardly find such forum and chance of exposure.
