Niswarth documentary - press release by Phillips Academy

Tessa Pompa ’08 may now be a freshman at Stanford, but her memories of the slums of Mumbai, which she visited while still a Phillips Academy student, are never far behind. It was just last summer she found herself in India’s largest city, scrubbing filthy concrete floors with monsoon water as gleeful toddlers skidded on their bellies through the muck.
