About Me

I am a 17-year-old student at the International School of Bangalore. My interests lie in social entrepreneurship, public speaking, and advocacy. I enjoy exploring the intersection between economics, psychology, politics, and anthropology. My core values are authenticity, empathy, and integrity.

My vision is to create a world in which nobody hesitates to seek support. To achieve this, I co-founded a global initiative, Let’s Talk, which aims to spread mental health awareness. For my work in the social sector, I have received the Diana Award, The Karamveer Chakra, and the “Young Leaders Creating a Better World for All” award by the Women’s Economic Forum.

I am also An Ashoka Young Changemaker and work with Ashoka Innovators for the Public on national and international projects to empower young people. I have a keen interest in advocacy and have spoken at TEDx, The United Nations, The Women’s Economic Forum, The Women’s Initiative for Social Entrepreneurship Summit, and The Graduate School of Education at The University of Pennsylvania.

In my free time, I enjoy painting, talking to new people, and yoga. Feel free to reach out to me at aaryanisahay@gmail.com
