I think it's very important for all the youngsters to have leadership qualities and they should take up such roles, this not only will help them groom but will also help our Society to grow.

When I joined Enactus, everything was very challenging initially. Especially the marketing visits and production visits. They required a lot of hardwork and Patience. I'd travel for 1-2 hours for production visit and marketing visits also. I used to find all these things very annoying but they were actually grooming me and making me a better version of myself and preparing me to face the real world.

Enactus is Entrepreneurial organisation. I want to start something of my own so all the things that I have learned in the past year, it has helped me understand the Entrepreneurial world in a far better way than a text book.
