Shorya Mittal - Selected for The Social Hackathon 5.0
A Software engineer by training, Shorya Mittal loves bringing humanitarian perspectives into conversations solely logical. She started her organisation while still in college as a result of being surrounded with issues herself. Apart from being a full time entrepreneur, she is also a published poet and a maths enthusiast. Over the course of her journey, she has learned the craft of building and managing teams, growing social media presence, maintaining networks and is now on the path to learn the art of business development and raising funds.
Every person, irrespective of their social economic background, has an issue they don’t talk about because there is a stigma attached to it, and we provide an empathetic and non-judgemental platform to talk about those issues. By talking about these issues we try to bring people together because most stigmas - bullying, discrimination, abuse - are universal phenomenons. We propose that the first step to solving these global issues is acknowledging them and normalising them by talking about them.
We intend to talk about stigmas that give us the unique opportunity to unify people and bring them together and simultaneously talk about the most serious issues of the world that currently hold us back from a more equal, kinder and progressive world, and therefore working on SDG 5 and 10
I yearn to live in a kinder world wherein there are equal opportunities accessible to everyone. Through this initiative, I want to work on building this world
