Shreyasa or ‘Shrey’ as she is better known to many of her friends, moved to Singapore to major in Economics at Yale-NUS College where she is presently in her third year of studies. Originally from Nepal, she has a strong interest in development economics specific to education and health. Her passions thus amalgamate these fields as she hopes to bring what she has learnt from the classrooms into the real world. While in high school, Shrey volunteered as a teacher at the Khagendra New life Secondary School, a non-profit which provides free education to underprivileged children with physical or learning disabilities. Most recently, she developed a concept proposal for the Nepal Orthopaedic Hospital back in Nepal to establish the country’s first bone bank. With the project underway, Shrey hopes to extend her research to other developing countries as well.
Besides her obvious love for economics and her desire to build a better tomorrow, Shrey is involved in various student programs. She previously served as Director for Training with the Yale-NUS International Relations and Political Association (YIRPA), where she trained university students to excel at Model United Nations conference. She is presently still an Executive Board member of KidsAccomplish, a student-run enrichment program that aims to provide younger students with experiential learning opportunities to increase their social and self awareness - an endeavour in line with The Global Citizen’s mission.
