Neeharika Munjal was conferred the title of Global Scholar by Andover High School. She was recognized for her efforts as Ekal Youth Leader and for her invited talk at the US Embassy in Kenya.

The Global  Pathways program at Andover High School provides students with a personalized, self-selected series of experiences focused on individual interests where students are supported to explore and connect distinct content areas, with an overarching shared-experience as emerging global citizens.  

Along the pathways, and through the lens of a global citizen-scholar, faculty advisors and community mentors guide students, in a cohort of like-minded peers, through the discovery of the connections that link their interests, intellects, and passions.  Global Scholars are encouraged to travel abroad  and experience other cultures through unique and customized trips organized by each individual student.  In addition, students are required to take four years of a foreign language, enroll in a variety of global-minded courses, create a Capstone research project and share their stories through both a digital portfolio and variety of community presentations and opportunities.

The vision of the Global Pathways Program is for students to work toward mastery in an integrated, hands-on environment designed to facilitate curiosity, care, creativity, and collaborative entrepreneurship through a dynamic global lens. Utilizing local, national, and international resources, students will apply their skills to complex, ill-defined problems in a real-world context, while partnerships with businesses and universities will help students and faculty to forge long-term relationships with professionals in the field.


Neeharika Munjal, as part of the program decided to look at education globally.  In her final speech at the graduation ceremony she talked about the journey both as a Ekal Youth Leader where she donated $5000 for adopting a school in rural India . She also ran Appathon  where by she taught kids in New England to build apps while raising funds as part of Ekal Vidyalaya. 

An inspirational young woman, she wants to continue to remain engaged with Ekal as she goes on to do her undergraduate degree at Boston University. We wish her the very best of luck.
