Let’s Make A Difference has always been functioning on the efforts and sacrifice of its young volunteer team under the guidance of the course convener. Comprising people from around the country, this team of youth gathers whenever and wherever a program is being organized. This model has been functioning well in terms of organizing a well-thought conference, but the larger purpose of empowering newer members of LMAD’s team to host and deliver a full fledged conference was achieved only in a fragmented manner.
The thought behind having a Fellowship was to build a team that would focus on their inner growth and alongside take the work of LMAD ahead in various aspects, besides this making progress on new opportunities that would come their way. Time and again at many discussions pertaining to the future of LMAD, this thought of having a Fellowship was reborn and supported by many.
Following the two years of the pandemic, this thought culminated into the first Fellowship of LMAD which started from 9th November 2021 with six individuals joining hands and living in Defence Colony, Delhi at the LMAD Fellowship Home as LMAD’s first fellows.
Hi, this is Tanishqa Gandhi, 18 years old, currently studying BBA-IB from MIT, Pune. I attended my first youth conference in 2019 and since then LMAD's teachings in my life have inspired me to change and that change has brought me closer to my family. I want to see that happen in today’s generation. I also aspire to become a better person and keep it consistent throughout my life. It’s a privilege for me to be selected as a Fellow, and I’m surely going to make the most out of it.
Hello there. My name is Tanishk Patil. I hail from Pune and am currently studying Psychology. When I was in school, I was one of the mischievous, notorious kids. I used to do all the wrong things which you could think of. Well, I realized that it was wrong only after I attended the Let’s Make A Difference Conference. Since then I’ve brought about quite a few changes in myself, and I want to change even more. So I’m here for this Fellowship to work on myself, to become a sort of polished personality, to explore my own potential, and of course, to play a part in taking LMAD to newer heights and untapped territories; And also to become a good person for the world.
My name is Yash Runwal. I come from Nashik, Maharashtra and am currently studying in K. J. Somaiya College of Arts and Commerce, Mumbai. I got connected with LMAD in the year 2019. Since then, my relationship with my family has improved manifold. The powerful experience of the Asia Plateau opened my eyes towards the deteriorating youth. I felt an urgent need for this message to spread in my friends and peers. My aim is to learn as much as I can in these six months and become capable of spreading the work of LMAD wherever I go, to uplift the youth and society, as one.
