Shree Pandya, aged 16, attends William P. Clements High School in Sugar Land, Texas. She considers globalization to be the most powerful force shaping the future world, as it will determine the nature of international relations between countries. China and India hold most interest to her because they symbolize the rise of the East in international affairs. She hopes to study both countries in depth in the future, along with Latin America. Her greatest ambition is to form an NGO geared towards ending poverty, what she believes is mankind’s greatest threat in the coming years.
