My name is Sunil and I'm a first-year student from near Washington, D.C. I joined Bonner during my second semester at Brown and I'm really excited to be working with the programme to make a difference in Providence! In high school I did a lot of education work in my community—things like tutoring and teaching in underprivileged areas. My goal with Bonner is to get experience in social work that will help me pursue a career in the medical field. Besides doing service and studying, I'm a huge Game of Thrones watcher/reader, coffee/tea aficionado (catch me at Dave's on Main St) and Drake fan.

How has Bonner impacted your time at Brown? Thus far I've had an awesome time working with Home to Hope, and the time I spend there has helped enrich the rest of my academic and personal experience at Brown.
