The article features Minca Borg, a student in the popular Sustainable Living major at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, who also enjoyed the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education at Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield.

Minca participated in DestiNation Imagination, a creative problem-solving contest for high school students, where she developed self-confidence and teamwork skills. At MUM, she uses her communication and collaborative skills in World Congress, a student club that focuses on social and organizational development by facilitating processes for brainstorming, planning, and community dialog. Last year, she served on the Global Student Council as sustainable council vice president, contributing to the development of the edible forest on campus. This year, she helped organize the EcoFair.

''What I really appreciate about the Sustainable Living Program is that it has a little bit of everything: science, group work, individual work, reading, discussions—just a nice balance,'' said Minca. ''There is a real sense of community in the Sustainable Living Department and a feeling that all of the students care about the world.''
