Let’s get to know something special about him.  

Devin Chowdhury Devin Chowdhary

Hi, I am Devin Chowdhury and I’m currently studying my undergraduate in Psychology at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

I have a passion for traveling and meeting new people from a wide range of backgrounds. It has helped shaped my perspectives and ultimately led me to pursue an international education at the University of St Andrews. Along, with exploring opportunities such as this one. At Dr. Bansi Dhar School, Kota, I was able to observe the education system with great depth, while having individual sessions with students that gave me insight into their perspective of their time in the class room. This led me to have a better understand of Indian culture and gave me an in-depth look into the lives of the future generation.
