Georgetown University

Anya Wahal, from Scottsdale, Arizona, graduated from Georgetown University in 2023 with a BS in Foreign Service, majoring in Science, Technology, and International Affairs, with a concentration in Energy & Environment and a minor in Chinese. For her senior thesis, she completed research and produced a documentary on how the Colorado River Basin water shortages have affected farming communities in Arizona. She is currently a Fulbright-Nehru Student Researcher in Delhi, India, where she is conducting ethnographic and policy research on how women in Delhi’s low-income communities are disproportionately affected by poor water quality. She is also learning both Chinese and Hindi, in honour of her bi-racial heritage. As a Marshall Scholar, Anya will pursue an MPhil in Water Science, Policy, and Management at the University of Oxford.
