    from New Delhi, Delhi

I am a proud daughter of a primary school teacher who's pursuing her Bachelor's of Technology in Computer Science (III Sem). I recently got selected as one of the 300 delegates from all over the world for the very reputed HPAIR (The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations) - Harvard College Conference which is at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA from 15 Februaury,2019 to 18 February,2019. 

I've been bearing expenses of my past events on my own, hence this is my first crowdfunding campaign and I seek your help in making my efforts reap fruits.
The Harvard College Conference is truly going to serve as the gateway for my dreams and is definitely going to be a door for my future endeavors in the field of mental health and sustainable development.
I'd highly appreciate any contribution made for this, be it very small, Also, I'd love to personally write a handwritten thank you letter for donations if you provide your postal address via email ( WhatsApp (+91 8448533656) or comment.

Sharing a bit about my background, apart from pursuing Computer Science Engineering, I am a mental health activist who's currently planning for a startup which would be solely working for the betterment of the mental health of the people. I even spend some of my time counseling people for free suffering from mild to moderate depression. Some of my proud achievements that I'd like to share are :
  •  Recently signed as the President to start the first chapter of a US non-profit Organisation Letter to Strangers in India which focuses on betterment of mental health worldwide.
  •  Received an appreciation letter from Minister of Women and Child Development for Policy recommendations. 
  • Selected as a delegate for IIT, Delhi's first Business and Entrepreneurship Conference 2018 
  • Selected as one of the five students in India to interact with Mr. Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, Uber live on CNBC TV18 by Uber, India

Brief overview of HPAIR (The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations) - Harvard College 2019 : "Asia’s astounding growth over the past decade has not been without challenges. Solutions to sustainable development remain elusive; alarming human rights abuses against women, refugees, and the LGBTQ community remain unanswered; rising wealth inequality, catalyzed by globalization, remain unaddressed. The 2019 HPAIR Harvard College Conference will offer a platform to cooperatively confront these emerging challenges in Asia through dialogue and exchange that transcend geographical and cultural borders."
