Radhika Kandalgaonkar: Fellow 2015-2016

How was your experience with Avanti Young Women Leadership Program?

It was great learning experience where almost 2000 girls taught me different things. They taught me the value of determination in scarcity. In spite of living in an area where there is no access to internet, no teachers and parents support, poor electricity, etc. girls did their best in the projects. It taught the most important lesson of not giving up, no matter what the situation may be.

Your most cherished moment:

One of the memories which can never be erased is when a girl came up to me and said “Didi I want to be like you when I grow up and do work like you”. This taught me that whatever you do, do it with true passion without expecting anything in return. It also made me believe in myself more”

How did the fellowship help you regarding your future career?

This fellowship has helped me gain clarity in life and realize my passion. My passion is to open a Beauty Salon. I now plan to meet experts and entrepreneurs in this sector to build my knowledge and understanding.It has helped me to plan next step in my life where I plan to do my higher studies and at the same time pursue my passion of starting up with a Salon. It will give me true happiness and a clear picture of success in my life. All the skills I have developed here in this fellowship will help me build my career towards my passion.

“I surely recommend this fellowship to other girl as it will help them development their personality and also open up a lot of possibilities and opportunities. It will help girls realize their passion, just like I did, and work upon it using the skills learnt in this fellowship. You will get exposure to connect to many elements in life (social, corporate, personal) and also it will help you to understand YOURSELF better which is more important than anything else.” – Radhika
