Google Mentor Reflections

I've always been passionate about social work. In India I used to volunteer at an NGO for underprivileged kids. I get a lot of satisfaction in knowing that somehow, I'm able to help young kids align their goals and work towards a brighter future. With telementor, I'm able to mentor kids virtually and spend quality time dedicated to my greatest passion.
