Saba is a student of Marol Municipal Urdu School, Mumbai. She is a first-generation learner, presently in Grade 10. She was unsure of what career path would be suitable for her. Through the little knowledge and ambiguous interests that she had, Saba was looking at and aspiring for various discrete professions like investment banking, journalism and entrepreneurship. CareerAware helped her gain clarity and streamline her plan according to the best fit for her in line with her interests, aptitude, reality and personality. She is now looking forward to recommending the program to her juniors who would be able to gain clarity regarding their career paths like she did.
There are many others like Saba who need your continued support for realizing and achieving their dreams. Your support will help us reach out to and impact more youth in the near future. We are immensely proud of what we have achieved so far which would not have been possible without your support. Thank you for the trust you have placed in us.
