I leave Chicago tomorrow for a 10-month fellowship in India through the American India Foundation (AIF).  I’ll be working in Bangalore, Karnataka with AIF’s Digital Equalizer project.  Partnering with Adobe Youth Voices, my focus will be on media (video) education.  I also hope to work on an independent documentary project while I’m in Bangalore.

I’ll use this blog to document and share my experiences with writing, photos, and videos.

The fellowship begins with a 2-week orientation in Delhi, where I’ll meet the 24 other AIF Service Corps fellows.  Together, we’ll participate in team-building activities, listen to speakers involved in the Indian development field, and visit AIF-supported projects.

My next post will most likely be after orientation, once I’ve arrived in my new home!
