Ruth Charlotte Yardy

24 January 2015

My name is Ruth Charlotte Yardy. I am in my first year studying Law with French Law at the University of Birmingham. I joined St Joan of Arc in 2010 and was soon introduced to the school’s link with Udayan – I knew straight away that the link was special and that it would be very important to me. During my time at St Joan’s I was involved in many of the various activities that took place to raise money for Udayan including helping at cake sales and attending two of the Udayan evenings organised by Mrs Weldon. I hope to give as much as I can to this trip in terms of helping in whatever way possible; it is a privilege to be given this opportunity. I am hoping that this trip will give me a better understanding of the world that we live in and I would like to gain an appreciation for another different culture. The most exciting thing about this trip is the fact that I really do not know what to expect so I am keeping an open mind!
