Yash Mehta

Inspired by the actions of my parents and traditions, my intrigue into religion has intensified. I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in various charitable projects, trying to spread the good over the evil - the eternal meaning of Diwali. For example in 2013, I was a part of a charity play for a UK religious charity. Performing to over 1500 people it raised funds to help spread the knowledge of religion. Through my study of Sanskrit, it has taken me back to my roots.

Working for the benefit of others is my life motto which can be supported by my desire to study medicine. In 2013, I was privileged to join a charitable project to Ahmedabad, India where I got the chance to meet some of the most disadvantaged children in this part of the world. From playing football to teaching English made me grateful for what I had. I witnessed young families without basic amenities, inspiring me to go back and help these societies one day.

Through community service, my desire to work for the better of mankind and classes I have taught on Dharma; these activities can be compared to the spirit of Diwali - spreading knowledge over ignorance.
