    How can a bunch of college students make a difference?

    By Meera | October 8, 2013


    This past week, I had the opportunity to attend a fundraiser I helped organize for the student-founded nonprofit, the Pure Water Access Project (PWAP), a nonprofit aimed to combat water-related issues.

    It was humbling to see our efforts culminate in a professional and successful event. Even more important was witnessing what a group of students with a passion had accomplished.

    Although not a co-founder of the group, I serve as an Outreach Fellow with the organization. I work with the Director of Outreach, Shuvro Roy, to learn about nonprofit leadership and gain skills in communication and research.

    The whole night consisted of networking with highly influential professionals in medicine and social entrepreneurship. But the best part of the night was listening to 2 of the founders detail PWAP’s mission and passion towards the most essential component of life, water.

    It made me realize that we should not undersetimate ourselves. We might be college students, but our passion and unparalleled eagerness is what allows us to make an impact on the world.

    It is what makes us agents of change.

    At a place like Ohio State, such change is possible. The resources here are abundant and a student interested in starting some organization or business is bound to find another student with the same passion.
