    After completing CTN, what new awareness do you have for yourself (ME) and your community (WE) and what is one action you might take to continue to explore it?

    Niyati's Answer

    After completing this project with CTN , i am thankful to the team for giving us such opportunity to wok on a project where we can come up with ideas and solutions to an issue which is commonly faced by students studying in college. I being an international student could really relate well to the issues being faced while i worked on this project. The awareness i have about my self and my community is it is always useful and important to be aware of rules, laws and regulations in whichever place you stay in respect of housing is one such area. One action which i will take to explore is keep learning.
