" I feel that a good network can be the biggest asset a human being can have, even bigger than the skills they possess. UN Millennium Fellowship allows me to network with like-minded people from all over the world, who are passionate about social impact.

At The Matrix, we are trying to build a community where we allow a constant flow of knowledge to develop, 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐜𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐢𝐭. We are trying to build a network where High school students who are confused about their course selection, colleges, university curriculum, entrance examinations, personal finance, etc, are connected with a set of mentors.
These mentors are 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐮𝐚𝐭𝐞/𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐭-𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐮𝐚𝐭𝐞 students pursuing diverse courses across different universities. Mentees are connected with one or more mentors depending upon the nature of their doubts.
This also provides a healthy foundation for networking, making new connections, and meeting new friends.
