A Silent Meek Student’s metamorphosis into a confident Social Entrepreneur with Passion driven Goals

My journey as a student and as an undergraduate has kindled my passion towards social service and bringing a change in the society. This evolvement has been drastic and path changing to my life during this pandemic period. My passion has given a scope in the right direction and materialized in the form of my own NGO “ Bodhan” bridging way to adulthood. The word Bodhan is evolved from Sanskrit meaning “ To Educate”.

In the Year 2017, I had an opportunity to be a part of the Global Young Leaders Conference at New York and Washington DC, USA where I was a Vice Chair in this program and also a delegate at United Nations Headquarters. This was a turning point in my life and guided me in my choose path.

My three years of graduation of BBA in specialization with liberal arts curriculum in VIT AP, have expanded my horizons and made me realize that my true calling towards to be as a successful Social Entrepreneur with service and commitment in influencing new thinking in the younger generation.

Some of My major subjects in the field of Anthropology, Ethnography, gender studies, qualitative and quantitative research has widened my horizons and helped my true calling .

I was instrumental in starting a new club called Sanskriti in my first year which provides a platform for exchange of diverse culture and students to show case their talents.

In my second year I established a open community club namely “Rudra” first of its kind to bring about a holistic idea of voluntary donation and by recycling of used items which are eventually donated to the orphanages and the needy. My Motto as a Former Chairperson in Rudra is to donate Humanity and visualize joy of giving .
