About: Kewanda Merritt

A native of Lumberton, NC and a graduate student pursuing a Master of School Administration degree from the University of NC at Chapel Hill in hopes of becoming a high school principal, I think it is beneficial to travel in order to gain knowledge of different approaches, whether good or bad, that other countries take in solving and/or addressing various social issues. So, it probably does’t come as a surprise that my favorite pastime is to travel; it can be to a neighboring county, a state one hundreds of miles away, or a country on the other side of the world! I love to travel and would like to travel to India because I am very inquisitive --always wanting to know the ‘how’ and the ‘why’, I believe that exposure to different cultures will expunge prejudices, and I find traveling to be extremely beneficial. So, why not travel to India? India has always been a country of interest to me. Amongst other characteristics, Hinduism, Mahatma Gandhi, early Indian literature, and traditional Indian ceremonies are all aspects of India that are of great curiosity to me. And I plan to bring you along with me on my Indian Adventure:-)
