"I am a Public Policy Practitioner and a Journalist coming from a farmer's family from Bhimashankar village of Maharastra. I have also worked as an Engineer, Researcher, and Media person for Governmental and Non-Govt organizations and as a Legislative Assistant for LokSabha. My one year at Samata Center as a part of the Samata Scholars Program has strengthened my academic skills and enabled me its immersive academic leadership program. The Samata Scholars Program here has been full of learning opportunities. They always provided me with the mentoring, master's class, and assistance that I required for my overall development and to improve my academic writing. They also connected me with different academics across the world. I will always be grateful to them for providing me with mentoring for my Chevening Application and preparing me for my Master's in the UK. The Journey from the small village of Bhimashankar to London was only possible because of Samata Center"
