Significant Life, Organisational Experience(s):
Smruti recalls her first steps towards empathy while working with Helpage India and Bharat Scouts & Guides, where she represented her school at various levels and volunteered for multiple events happening across the city. She also volunteered for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan with the Bhubaneswar Railways for several months to create awareness among people. These activities imbibed a sense of responsibility in her towards the society. She understood how one’s irresponsibility disturbs the whole system. While pursuing her graduation she joined Swabhimaan, an organisation working for ‘specially abled children’, where she assisted the team in preparing audiobooks of school and college textbooks for enabling the learning of visually challenged students. She also volunteered with Anjali International Children’s Festival where groups of specially-abled children from all over India and Nepal participated in workshops and cultural activities. These experiences made her humble and realise the privileges that were taken for granted. She also honed her people management skills while working with the above organisations.
