Making it to Forbes 30 under 30!

I’m so happy to share the third episode. This one is for everyone who has self doubts, and fighting their own battles. Maybe, considering giving up too.

Anubha is the founder of GirlScript Technologies and Foundation. She aims to make education and opportunities accessible to everyone.

She comes from an unknown small town and local college. Early in her life, she faced huge personal losses, and had the responsibilities of the family. Listen to her story braving against all odds, to make the world a better place ❤

Her initiatives have impacted more than 5 Lakh students in technology across 70+ cities in India. She has been featured in Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 list for Social Entreprenuership in 2020.

She shared with me, her stories of getting started, building a community, facing online hatred, depression, the secret of her motivation, opinions on EdTech platforms and diversity hiring, and advice for everyone looking to make a mark, irrespective of where they are now!

We spoke for over 1.5 hours, I’ve tried my best to shorten it without losing the essence of the conversation. Tune into this very honest conversation with her to know more about her journey from a Tier-3 city, her failures, struggles with mental health and her inspiration.
