I have graduated as a production engineer in 2015. While doing engineering I started an initiative called ‘Each One can Teach One’, in which I taught dropouts and child laborers. I always wanted to do something meaningful for the society as well as for myself while creating large impact. To follow my passion in development sector I joined Gandhi Fellowship. Where I worked with different stakeholders of education sector. Lived in the slum to understand the root cause of the problems.
To understand policy implementation better, Zila Swacch Bharat Prerak with Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation and Tata Trusts in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Where I acted as the link between Central and State government and District Administration. I ensured the quality implementation of the scheme with some innovative methods like the Direct Beneficiary Transfer (DBT) and training more than 500 stakeholders.
To understand the fundamental reasons and elements behind policy-making, I joined the Master’s in Public Policy Course. After doing courses like public finance, macro and microeconomics, etc, I understood the components of policymaking.
My key area of interest in development sector is education and water and sanitation. I am hardworking and self-motivated person. As a team player, I am always ready to learn and explore something new and relevant to development sector. I love to travel and interact with people.
Aspirational District Fellowship would provide me the opportunity to work for the holistic development of the district and create large impact. Additionally it help me to bring the change, I want to see in the society. ADF would also provide me the platform to explore more sectors in development field, ground realities, and enhance my knowledge and experience in rural India. After fellowship I wish to do PhD in rural development.
