Rashini is one of 43,000 applicants who applied to and 1,800 who were accepted into the State Department program for the 2014-15 school year. As a YES participant, Rashini is charged with sharing information about her culture with as many individuals and groups as possible, as well as learning about U.S. culture on behalf of her country.
