International Buddy Program Coordinator – Prabhakar Bholah (2021-2022)



Hello Everyone,

My name is Prabhakar Bholah and I’m the new International Student Buddy Coordinator for the 2021/2022 year. I am excited to getting to know y’all. Travelling to a new country and adapting can be hard and challenging. But guess what, the International Buddy Program is BACK !!!

It’s a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and get involved into activities and events.

I am an international student from the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. I am pursuing a degree in Engineering specifically into Mechatronics. I am in my third year and enjoying my studies and semesters so far with lots of good experiences and fun stuff.

Being an islander myself, my favorite sport is swimming. I enjoy exploring and travelling. My favorite hobbies are playing piano, gardening, cooking, video editing, hiking and biking.

I’m also multilingual and speak English, French, Hindi and other dialects such as the “Mauritian Creole”. I like to be active and learn new things.

I hope to get more connected with y’all soon. Don’t hesitate to reach me on Facebook [UPEI Buddy Pro Coordinator], Instagram [UPEI Buddy] or via email at if you have any questions. I trust y’all are doing good wherever you are and staying safe. I am thrilled to start this new journey with y’all.

Throughout the semester, I will be planning and coordinating various events and programs (some virtual) for your enjoyment. I encourage you all to participate, have fun, and make new friends!

Feel free to send me an e-mail or use any of the resources outlined below!
