Akanksha is a young woman from India who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship thanks to your help. This is her story:
“I am Akanksha from Nepal and recently, I have just finished my Masters in Business Administration from Said Business School, University of Oxford. I have also been awarded the prestigious Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa by Tech Nation to continue working in the United Kingdom.
I aspire to create much greater social and environmental impact with my work within the Tech for Good sector, especially with a focus on EdTech, Gender Lens Investing, and Impact Investments in emerging economies. I see myself as an instrument in creating more meaningful impacts in this world. I was always driven by a sense of giving back to the community; headstrong and standing for what was right. FISA has empowered me to keep achieving my goals and make a positive impact.
I am a Wedu Rising Star and I have been blessed with amazing mentors with whom I still keep in touch. I decided to apply for FISA to seek help to pay for my visa and secure my future, as well as of those whom I will continue to support with my work in the impact sector.”
