rajagopal_shivaDear Contributor,

Being a delegate to the National Youth Science Camp this year was the most valuable experience of my life to date. The camp exposed me to new knowledge in all areas, from biology and chemistry to morality and life in general. I enjoyed talking to delegates from all backgrounds and learning from them. I have made friendships that I will value for the rest of my life, and I have now joined a group of alumni that I am humbled to be a part of. The program is truly amazing, and I am very thankful for your contribution. For a program like this to be all-expenses-paid is simply incredible. You made a huge difference in my life, and I know the experience will stick with me for many years to come. I hope you will continue to contribute to this wonderful program. Few programs are as valuable as the NYSC, and I’d love to see more lucky students have this opportunity to spend time in the West Virginia hills.
