Hello, my name is Kavya Vijay, a Final year IB student from Jayshree Periwal International School, Jaipur, Rajasthan. I am a National level Basketball player, and in my free time, I sometimes play squash and football with my friends. As an academically driven and self-focused person, I invest most of my time learning new skills, reading books like The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy, Power of Awareness by Neville Goddard, and Can’t hurt me by David Goggins, etc., and learning from my mistakes. Grew up in Entrepreneurial and Business surroundings, my heart and mind always make me lean toward doing business and learning about entrepreneurship. As I grew up, I recognized myself more from experiencing the highest highs and lowest lows in my life, through all this, I developed a vision to pursue Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology as my major in College and implement all my learning to create a successful business. At Launchpad U18 I am deciding to build an E-commerce company that will help not only people but also the retailers. I expect to learn about Marketing and Logistics at the Launchpad U18 program and build good connections with peers and mentors.

I have a consistent record of achieving high scores in academics as well. I have a keen interest in psychology. I am excited about joining this program because it is going to guide me to my dream of building a startup, called Amigo A My hobbies include reading and dancing. I have been learning Kathak for the last 6 years. This has been a great stress buster for me. My friends say that I am good at debating and convincing people to agree with my opinion. Abrazo is about robots and mental health joining forces. My idea revolves around a robot with similar sensations to human beings, because with viruses, physical contact with humans is decreasing, and lack of social contact is the primary cause of mental health issues. So this robot would be able to talk and support humans. This is would help in thearupetic treatment and decrease mental illness rates.
