    Akshit Garg

    from Nagpur, Maharashtra


I'm Akshit Garg, a junior year student pursuing his Bachelor's of Technology degree in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (NIT Nagpur). I recently got selected as one of the 500 delegates from all over the world for very reputed HPAIR (Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations) conference which is at  Nazarbayev University, Nur-Sultan (Astana), Kazakhstan from August 16, 2019, to August 20, 2019. 

I will be representing INDIA in the Science and Technology track and as a passionate researcher, HPAIR will provide me a great platform to connect with the like-minded individuals from all over the world. It will also serve as a great opportunity for me to learn and showcase my research work on Biomaterials. This Harvard Conference is truly going to serve as a gateway for my dreams and is definitely going to be a door for my future endeavors in the field of Medical Science and Social entrepreneurship.  
I have always been very passionate about attending such conference and experience first-hand the exposure they provide, but coming from a middle-class family I could never finance it myself. To make it to the event, I need your help. I would be needing help to fund my expenditure for the conference which is somewhere around 73K. I'd highly appreciate any contribution made for this, be it very small. I will try to return the gratitude with my skills, ideas, and shoutouts during my stay at Astana and also during my traveling.

Sharing a bit about my background, apart from pursuing my bachelor's in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering, I'm also working on social entrepreneurship idea which will help to solve one of the biggest problem in the medical industry and I'm sure this start-up will affect the lives of millions of people around the world. I'm also involved in various volunteering work in my college and hometown as well. 
By donating me you will help a young researcher to create a profound impact on the life of millions living around the globe, including you! I truly believe that the insights gained from there would be valued for a lifetime and help me to make the world a better place. I will be more than happy to guide you and share learning from the journey.
