In Episode 06, John sits down with Gaurav Harshe, a Master’s student in the Electrical Engineering department. Gaurav is from Mumbai, India and has been at CSU since the Fall of 2016. Some organizations he is a part of include the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, the Council of International Student Affairs, The Indian Students Association and he also spends time working in the Office of International Programs. Tune in to hear them discuss how Mumbai is both the LA and New York of India, the linguistic and cultural diversity within India, how to find unity in diversity and how to navigate the insanely packed train cars of Mumbai.

The stories we share have the power to connect us across borders, fences or walls we’ve constructed to divide ourselves. There’s so much to learn, we just have to listen.
