Shreya Mahesh wins the Champion Funtrepreneur award for her initiative as a young entrepreneur.
Shreya Mahesh, a student of Class 7, inspired by the online Young Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) conducted last year in Class 6, was the recipient of the Champion Funtrepreneur Award for her initiative as a young entrepreneur conducted by Udhyam Learning Foundation in May 2021.
Shreya chose to find a way to spread a smile and solve the problem of boredom in small kids. The highlight was taking a session for the children (6-10 years) of an orphanage by using her puppet to entertain the kids which included art and craft, riddles, tongue twisters, dance and story time making the session interactive and fun. It surely did put a smile on their faces.
