Thanks to Pax Populi, â€œpeople to people peacemakingâ€ program, I see myself as a family member of Pax Populi Academy (PPA), where I have been attending its online courses as a student of Eisha Sarkar since October 2015 and am PPAâ€™s regional coordinator in Herat, Afghanistan. It all began when Kirthi Jayakumar, Pax Populiâ€™s regional coordinator in India, connected Eisha and me via an email. I was so excited about starting my classes with Eisha that I emailed her and asked if we could also become friends on Facebook so that we would stay in touch and I would have a lot more chances to learn from her. Surprisingly, she accepted my request on that day.
Since then, I have not only received her constructive comments and frequent feedback on my spoken and written English throughout our online meeting sessions, but also learnt more about each other`s cultural values, countries, families and friendship. I have noticed that Eisha Sarkar is by nature an inspiring individual and born educator. She had plenty of brilliant ideas for me, from starting from a blog where I could keep writing and publishing my own academic works to running a family business in which all my siblings could participate.
Now, I am thankful to great people like Prof Robert E. McNulty, Pax Populiâ€™s founder and director in the US, Kirthi Jayakumar, Pax Populiâ€™s regional coordinator in India and Eisha Sarkar, my talented tutor who have connected me to the world of peace through education. I am proud to be part of Pax Populi, and thank you all for being part of my life! Thank you! Regards,
