What Are You Most Passionate About?

I’m most passionate about bringing light to neglected causes. Juvenile recidivism is a rising problem in India that most people are not even aware of. I’m a believer that everyone deserves a second chance, especially those who are born into tough circumstances.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My hero is Malala Yousafzai. Her dedication to providing equality to all humans at such a young age is incredible. It is amazing to see how she was able to succeed while facing the most adverse conditions.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The sound of an iPhone ring. To me, this sound symbolizes the interconnectedness of our world. Technology has enabled us to communicate within a matter of seconds. The iPhone is a technological device that has revolutionized the way people interact. The ringtone highlights the effect of innovation, creativity, and pure talent.

What project would a laptop help you with? Give a short description.

The project would help us sustain our tech-literacy program in our orphanages and juvenile detention facilities in India. Through our curriculums, we’re enabling at-risk youth to gain skills that they never would have before. With more laptops, we’ll be able to empower more students.
