Sara Kille worked as a preschool teacher in her hometown of Tracy, California, when she discovered actor Jim Carrey's Maharishi University of Management (MUM) commencement speech on Facebook. Sara was planning to study environmentalism and sustainability, and Carrey's speech deeply resonated with her. She became curious about MUM, and . . . . enrolled as a sustainable living major in 2015.

Now a senior, Sara's passion lies in environmental activism and social change, and she managed to tailor her education to match her specific needs. In addition to taking classes in global sustainability, creating social change, and climate science and solutions, she completed a six-week internship with Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, an organization focusing on social, economic, and environmental justice for local communities.

Sara was looking forward to learning the Transcendental Meditation technique, and she has been pleased with the results. ''TM has smoothed out my emotions, so I feel more balanced,'' she said. ''I have more patience with myself and others.''
