“As a Millennium Fellow and a student leader, I will utilize the opportunity to connect with thought leaders and peers around the world. I aspire to develop values, management skills, and ways to create social impact. I have a lot to learn and explore.Upon everything, I want to create a global reach and exposure to our project and the work being done.We aim to create a global platform for the Buds Rehabilitation Centre to inspire parents of many such blessed kids assuring them a bright future. Being the Co-Founder of The Gulmohar Foundation, I would like to give my organization and the projects undertaken a global platform and to promote many more people into the act of volunteerism to be the change-makers.”
