Where Sahithi is from
What was your dream when you were a kid? What was the reason?
As a child I was always fascinated about the depth and beauty of hidden cultures which don’t come into light. I wanted to be a social journalist. My childhood dream grew up with me into being a social entrepreneur.
What was your dream when you were 18 years old? What was the reason?
At 18, I still wanted to become the same. And by then I already started accomplishing that dream in a small way.
What made you start thinking about social entrepreneurship/social enterprises? When was that?
I had a start up based on skill development for the rural engineering students which got me thinking that problem solving needs to have a structure and I felt the need to equip myself better to make a remarkable change.
How much do you think social entrepreneurs play an important role in the world?
We social entrepreneurs operate in this competitive world of business with a heart to touch the humanitarian grounds. World needs us to expirience the results what our incredible one year showcased us. We will create responsible and receptive brands to uplift the quality of a poor man.
What would you say to future social entrepreneurs / those who are interested in social entrepreneurs?
There is a business idea behind every common man’s problem. Let’s create sustainable solutions.

Who Sahithi is
Sahithi is a very optimistic person. You will notice that she always laughs, laughs and laughs, opening her mouth as if she will eats me. You cannot help laughing when you meet her because her smile is infectious. She has the power to make people happy by smiling and laughing out loud.
Sahithi loves friends. She is someone that protects and cares about her friends, never betraying them. She has a big and warm heart and is always there for her friends. She is one of the sweetest and lovable people that I know.
It seems like Sahithi is having so much fun with her life. “Life is fun no matter what will happen,” she has never told me that but I feel like she is showing me that with her lovely behavior and attitude. It is so much fun to be with her.
I learned a lot and had so much fun at Hult International Business School with my wonderful classmates during the one year program, but I have got to confess that my singular regret is that I have not tasted a meal that Sahithi cooked. Whenever she invited me for dinner or came to the apartment where I lived to cook dinner, I had to be at an event, a meeting or other appointment. I kept missing chances to have a meal that she made. I guess that going to visit Sahithi in India is the only option for me to let her feed me, haha. I believe that the day will come sooner or later. On my way, Sahithi!
The Power of MSE
What Sahithi is holding is a symbol called “go-en(ご縁)”, which means ‘fate’, ’destiny’ and ’special tie.’
I believe that it is meant to be that we met in San Francisco! I studied Social Entrepreneurship with Sahithi for a year, saying “We will make the world a better place.” I would love to spend the rest of my life with MSEs (Master of Social Entrepreneurship; my classmates) until the very day I die. They have already completely changed my life.
At the same time, however, I also think that we should not be together all the time, because that is not the reason why we learned Social Entrepreneurship. That is not how we will deliver the impact we want to give to society and to the world.
I think MSEs are like dandelions. We were seeded at the first day at Hult and we bloomed on our graduation day. Our mission is that we spread all over the world like dandelions and seed the future, the next generation, from each place where each of us has landed.
本当にありがとう(Honto ni Arigato-); Thank you very very much for everything!! The world needs you! Let’s make the world a better place together!!
