Arundhathi Krishna

It was while interning for Global Shapers Community (GSC) in 2021 that Arundhathi Krishna had the chance to visit Switzerland. The trip was just meant to be for 2-3 days. Arundhathi decided to make the most of her trip and extended it for a week longer. Little did she know then, that she would have a life-changing experience in a traveller’s hostel. No, really. Arundhathi stayed at Lauterbrunnen Valley Hostel during her trip.

There, she got talking to her bunkmate, Cassie, a psychotherapist from Spain. That is how Arundhathi, then 21, found her life's purpose. “For the first time in my life, I looked closer at the many aspects of who I am,” she says. “I was finding bits and pieces of the real me. I got the chance to better understand what motivated me to do the things that I was doing in life, and why.”
