“The integrated experience has helped me develop my raw ideas into innovative solutions for aspirational youth who are hungry to be self-reliant and prosper.”

Young people are the inspiration for Aditi’s vision of the future, where entrepreneurial spirit can ignite and thrive, leading to creativity and prosperity, even in uncertain economic times. Her experience teaching the youth of India critical digital skills revealed that they are ambitious yet challenged. Access to an education that includes technology, hands-on problem solving opportunities, and mentorships can change lives — like it did for one enterprising newspaper delivery boy in Aditi’s program, who leveraged his new knowledge to set up his own courier service. Now she’s taking advantage of MITidm’s diverse techniques to build up her own skills to enhance the work she’s doing. She graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology with an Integrated Master’s of Arts in Economics.
