My name is Jayashree Racha. I’m a graduate of Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology, 2017 batch. After graduation, I have joined a Hyderabad based Startup and worked there for a period of one year as an Operations Associate. Recently I had quit my job to work on few ideas. I would like to bring change in people's lives by creating awareness about consuming Nutritious food and make them healthy.
Introduction of Jagriti Yatra :
Jagriti Yatra is a 15-day long, national train journey across 12 destinations with 500 other Yatris that will take me 8000 kilometers across the length and breadth of India, to understand and build the India of smaller towns and villages through enterprise. I will meet role models, change-makers, leaders that started out on a journey just like me – and made a difference to thousands of lives. I will forge bonds with like-minded young leaders - my co-Yatris and complete strangers. They will become my closest friends and comrades for life. I will be exposed to role models who are building India through enterprise; through them I will find inspiration to undertake building my own journey.
Motivation to go on to yatra :
A journey with people from various cultural, social, economical backgrounds across the world, leaders and Entrepreneurs itself gives me a motivation to go on to yatra. I’m excited to travel with different people to learn, interact and share ideas, to have discussions on current opportunities in various fields and come up with distinctive solutions for social problems in the country. I see myself working in the field of Health and Nutrition in the future, by being a part of yatra I would like to meet people already working in this field. Another major motivation for me to go on to yatra is the opportunity to explore rural india and the challenges it presents, through first hand experience and the whole idea of living on a train for 15 days with strangers is compelling.
Why I deserve sponsorship?
After my graduation in 2017, I worked for a period of one year. Recently, I had quit my job to work on few ideas that I have been planning from few months. I believe Jagriti Yatra would act as a platform for me to network and build relationships with lot of similar entrepreneurial minds and be a part of this movement to understand the Rural India and its problems through firsthand experience. Eventually, it would help me in getting closer to my dream of establishing a company which works towards spreading awareness of living healthy life through proper intake of nutritious food. Through this idea, I would want to impact the lives of people in a positive way. Right now, I wouldn't be able to afford the entire Yatra fee. Also, I honestly feel, the contribution helps me in gaining knowledge, achieving something great in life. The people who are reading this will make me achieve my dream of being a part of it.
The Yatra fee is 66,000 INR of which I have received the level 2 scholarship from the Jagriti Team. I am looking for sponsors who can help me with an amount of 30,000 INR. The remaining expense like travel and registration fee will be done from my side.
It would be great if you can help me with this. Thanks in advance.
