“My year as a Sauvé Fellow reaffirmed my belief that beneath the differences of skin, accent and culture, the common language of humanity binds people from different parts of the world together. It’s a belief that helps guide me in the practice of journalism, where I so often have to interview people with completely different experiences and approaches, and still try to find a common thread, often in the span of a few minutes.”
In May 2015, Anupreeta returned to Sauvé House to participate in Sauvé Encore! 2015, as part of the Foundation’s alumni outreach program.
