Jemma Browne

29 December 2012

My name is Jemma Browne and I currently study Art, Geography and English Literature and hope to continue English Literature at university next year. Having been aware of the wonderful work that goes on at Udayan since I joined St Joan’s in year 7, I wanted a chance to experience it for myself. I enter into this trip with a mixture of excitement and trepidation about what I will encounter while visiting Kolkata. Although I am sure that any anxiety will be overridden by the warm and friendly greetings that I have been told to expect from the children and staff at Udayan. My family and friends are all excited that I am making this pilgrimage and are eager for me to absorb myself into the atmosphere of Udayan and bring back great memories to share.
