Co-Founder, Sowing Smiles

In Grade 11, I was selected to be part of Harvard Youth Lead the Change (YLC) program, a leadership conference conducted by Harvard University for high-school students. Within this conference, I was able to develop leadership and interpersonal skills through a variety of analytical as well as ice-breaker activities. This program certainly touched upon aspects of what it means to be a "good-leader' in today's world. 

This program facilitated the creation of "Sowing Smiles', a youth-run non-profit that aims to eradicate air pollution using oxygenated plants, an organization that I co-founded with my like-minded peers.

"Sowing Smiles" is a social youth community aimed at eradicating 'Air Pollution' by conducting plantation drives. These drives shall encourage the use of air-purifying plants at educational institutions, housing societies, restaurants, and other workplaces. The organization has made 2000+ impressions and continues to expand daily! We also maintain an environmental blog where we post regularly about depreciating conditions for the environment.
