My Story:

While I’m extremely grateful for the education I received...I hated school. According to me school is for children who excel academically but if you're like me and struggled at subjects like math and science, school is a tough place and with my struggles went my self esteem. I was good at art, sport and music, things that didn't count for much back then. It has taken me a long time to get over feeling like a dumb 13 year old and sometimes even today, I catch myself feeling that way. Project Rangeet allows children to excel at something they might be good at. I am grateful to be part of a team that has created a product that will pass on gratitude and kindness to children around the world, because at the end of the day, that’s what matters.
