Mansi Mehta is 15, her journey has been inspiring! Against all odds, she got the courage to work for the girls who do not get formal education. She runs a foundation to educate girls from marginalised background and advance her dream of a literate country.
Mansi Mehta is a 15-year old student studying in Surat. She has published a collection of poems under the title "I AM ME" dedicated to Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai. She is amongst the few teenagers in the city to run her own foundation where she teaches underprivileged girls and advances her dream of a gender-equal country through education. She has been awarded the Garima Award by Gajera Trust for her work.
Being one of the few to join the prestigious league of teenage TEDx speakers in India, Mansi takes inspiration from personalities like Sudha Murthy & Malala Yousafzai and preaches the idea that people need to accept the social disparity between genders, for the society to collectively move forward.
