We would like to forward our sincere congratulations to Astha Agarwal for being accepted into the PHD program at University of California Berkeley for School Psychology! Astha has been a member of the South Asian Youth Collective since 2015, and has remained active in our projects and causes.
I have had the opportunity to see Astha complete her undergrad degree, master’s and more recently the application process for the PhD programs at prestigious universities in the United States. I cannot be more proud for such a strong woman of colour to take up space in these institutions, and continue to create social impact in her communities. I have no doubt the incredible work she will do through working with children and youth, and look forward to more milestones by such a powerful woman!
