Anita Challa – My journey to UCPS began in East Africa, where I was born to Indian parents. The seeds of service, spiritual connection to Nature and interest in different cultures are gifts from my parents and family. My love for learning continued when we moved to England. Graduating with a degree in Biology and Chemistry, I worked in research at Birmingham University. Later, I studied and worked as a teaching assistant in primary, secondary, college and adult education. I am excited to explore what effect the nurturing environment at UCPS will have on the seeds long planted by my family and diverse experiences.
