A famous quote by Mark Twain - “ The Two Most Important Days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why you are born ”. I have always been very active from my college days in pursuing projects that helped me discover my skills and interest, from being a world record holder by creating six records in the field of art and craft to being a founder of various social initiatives and enterprises. During my college days, I served as a Secretary of the department's student body. My creative project work got published in various Record books. In the technical context, I was able to propose a project to the government of India to support SDG 11 ( Projectbazaar. in -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHet7bqBZBA ). After Passing out of the University, I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to be part of the Youth Citizen Service fellowship, where I was given the responsibility to establish a community information centre in a small village in India ( Community Information Centre YCS Fellowship - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c57DJ3-K3pY ). I have wanted to work on global issues like climate change and education for a long time. In 2019, I launched a textile upcycling initiative -Soulcraft, with two of my friends. The social Enterprise was on a mission to upcycle old pieces of denim and create school bags for the Underprivileged ( Solecraft - https://www.thebetterindia.com/195005/donate-old-jeans-upcycling-bag-shoes-needy-children-solecraft-india/ ). I was part of the core team for a year, built a business model around it, and now serve at the advisory level. Education was the second domain to work on, and I had a very tangible idea to work on. Three years back, I read that Maths Phobia and anxiety are the highest globally. Despite digitalisation, this problem needs to be solved. I was able to create the world’s first Trigonometry Based Board game.
