Answer Team

“I joined the ‘College SodhPuch‘ answer team because I know how confusing the college application process can be. I eventually found some excellent mentors who helped me a lot, but I know how lost I felt before I got to know them. If I can play a similar role in another prospective’s life, I know that I would have done a great dharma.”   -Bhushan Suwal
