Hello! My name is Hanika Saini and I am a third-year student majoring in Applied Human Nutrition with an emphasis in Dietetics and a minor in Psychology. One of my interests is nature walks. I hope to get a sense of connection by participating in the e-Pals initiative as well as learn more about my e-Pal's culture. Some of the topics that my e-Pal and I have been exploring centre on school, food and cultural celebrations in Canada versus in India. Overall, the e-Pals initiative is a great way to meet people from a different country and gain insights into their everyday life.

My name is Srija Singh. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Political Science at Miranda House, University of Delhi. My areas of interest lie in Indian politics and economy. In addition, I enjoy baking, painting, learning new words from other languages, listening to music, reading books and travelling.
Through the e-Pals initiative, I am able to interact with many people and learn about their perspectives on many issues and agendas. I'll be able to improve my own understanding of various topics. It enables me to widen my perspective in a variety of ways.
My e-Pal, Hanika, and I have been able to connect on many things, including a shared love for food, sleeping, travelling, and our common cultures. I have learned that despite coming from two different countries, there are so many similarities. The project we are undertaking is based on the same. The e-Pals initiative has been really beneficial to me in terms of broadening my perspectives and providing me with the chance to interact with students and exchange novel and innovative ideas with them. Additionally, I feel more comfortable starting conversations today, which has increased my personal confidence.
