Hey! My name is Isha Gupta, and I am 18 years old. I am an incoming freshman at George Washington University in Washington D.C. where I plan on studying International Relations.
In high school, I spent most of my time in Model UN and running my non-profit. I have been participating in Model UN for seven years, and it played a large role in fostering my interest in diplomacy. Also, I started a non-profit organization called the Manjula Gupta Foundation that focuses on increasing educational opportunities for females across the globe. One of my charities under this organization, Northville-DOVES, provides scholarships to daughters of veterans across America.
Being an American citizen with Indian ethnicity has influenced my interest in working Internationally, particularly at the UN. I have a large interest in international politics, conflict resolution, human rights, and education, and I can’t wait to explore them with ToU!
