CROWDRISING SINCE: Jan 10, 2011
Stuff About Me:
I'm currently living in India as the founder of The Teach Tour. As the prior co-founder of MILLEE based full-time in India, I represented MILLEE in the Unreasonable Institutes fellowship program, which mentors social entrepreneurs to develop sustainable business plans and marketing strategies for their social enterprises. My endeavor with MILLEE was to create a for-profit enterprise that develops educational games on mobile phones to teach English literacy to children in rural India. Recently, I embarked upon a mission to uncover how and why we’ve failed to educate children worldwide through a research project called The Teach Tour in collaboration with Gray Matters Capital. I plan to take my market research to a commercialized design consultancy service by creating an IDEO for education at the base of the pyramid. Previously, I designed and implemented a mobile phone solution for the Ujjivan Microfinance Institution when she worked with Microsoft Research India’s Technology for Emerging Markets group. I am also a Starting Bloc alum.

Going further back in time, after completing my undergraduate degree at Carnegie Mellon University, I joined Wall Street’s Merrill Lynch to build my corporate skills. During this time, I volunteered with Womens World Banking and discovered my passion for educating underprivileged but highly deserving women. That led me to quit my job and move to Cambodia to work with a non-government organization called Digital Divide Data. During my tenure with DDD, I developed a program called infinit-E with Transitions Global, a shelter for young women who have been rescued from brothels in South East Asia, to promote employability skills through English and computer literacy skills. This led to my eventual obsession and passion for childhood education combined with the beauty of sustainable for-impact enterprises.
