I’m Disha and I was born in India, and used to live in Qatar. I moved to Scotland in 2014, I’m sixteen and I currently live in Newton Mearns.
My life so far has been uniquely eventful. As a person, I’m still exploring myself. Exploring my strengths and weaknesses, my intellect, my aspirations, my fears etc. I take great interest in the field of sciences and I’m extremely passionate about art. A form of expression that has the divine capability of making a real difference to people’s life and the wider world.
When I’m not studying for exams or thinking about university applications, I like to draw, paint, sketch, play piano, play badminton, read, bake and watch Netflix. I also enjoy giving back to my community by volunteering in a charity shop and fundraising. I love travelling to new places and learning about different cultures and art forms.
I’m still at school and this year I’ll be studying Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Expressive Art, all at Advanced Higher level.
I’m hardworking, compassionate, ambitious and adaptable. By taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh award, I have developed my teamwork, leadership and communication skills to a great degree. Moreover, I’m immensely enthusiastic about helping and empowering other people.
By being a part of Sketchy Youths, I hope to meet new people learn ways in which I can promote art in my community and get more people to be involved in art. I also hope to increase my skill set, get more experience in working with various people from different walks of life and backgrounds and reach out to other young people whose voices are suppressed. I’d love to work towards a Community Achievement Award as it will be a great addition to my university application.
