Graduate Degree: Bachelor of Business Administration
Alma Mater: Mt. Carmel College, Bangalore

Three years ago when we were introduced to Miss Smitha, and the HEMLATA program, I wasn’t aware of the impact it would leave on me. From connecting with my mentor on a monthly or bi-monthly bases, or updating Miss Smitha about how I am, or the Life Skill sessions and informative webinars I was a part of, I am very glad I got this opportunity.
HEMLATA, the program, helped me through college to identify and understand the person I am, my strengths and weaknesses, and how I can be anything I want to be. My mentor helped me realize my potential and decisions in a much better way than I did before.
Being a part of the program has been an amazing experience, and I am so excited to see many more young girls thrive to be successful and brilliant women through this opportunity.
