Story

I am Naredla Venkata Srivatsa Srikar, a third year mechanical engineering student from RVR&JC College of Engineering, Guntur. Currently I am the only student with an opportunity to represent my university, our state and the skill development programs happening as a whole at an international platform in the Silicon Valley Meetup, San Francisco (CA)., this March,2019 for my works as a FAB (change agent in promoting innovation and entrepreneurship).
I got selected and trained by the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school), Stanford University, SFO, CA., as a University Innovation Fellow from our state. I represented our state earlier in March 2017 at the meetup and ever since my return, I rendered my services as an ambassador to Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation(APSSDC) as a part of VISION 2029 program by:
·         Training over 300+ students (from various colleges in AP) in design thinking and helping them equipped with necessary problem solving skills.
·         Working as a President for one of the five Venture Development Centers and helping 120 fellow students generate start-up ideas (currently coached by the North Eastern University, Boston)
·         Grooming and encouraging students with an entrepreneurial mind set in building an Entrepreneurial ecosystem by setting up makers’ spaces.
·         Training, Mentoring and coaching students across nation in various skill development programs
In the Silicon Valley Meetup this March 2019, I will be talking of all these happenings and inspire over 350 fellows and faculty champions across the globe and will be sharing my insights with my fellow students across the state and contribute to state’s skill development on my return.
Hailing from a lower middle class background, I am unable to afford my travel expenses (my food and accommodation are covered). I’ve approached my University for aid, but they are not in a position to fund me as they have sponsored me earlier in March 2017.
 I humbly request you to help me with necessary funding aid to meet my airfare expenses which would be
1.       either an air ticket from HYD to SFO on 20th March- 25th March 2019,
2.       or funding worth One Lakh Rupees (Rs.100000)
 and thereby help me avail the opportunity of being a global leader for change representing our state.
I’ve enclosed my profile link, a video in support of my work and a support letter from Stanford University as a requisite.
Awaiting a soliciting response and thanking you in anticipation
