“My time at UWC brought several walls down. I had been raised with a very specific conception of the world that didn’t really welcome difference, and being exposed to such diversity was the perfect setting to reconsider what I thought I knew about the world.”

Khristian Mendez - Guatemala, UWC Mahindra 2011
