Meet our friend, Kartik.

Kartik is a Software Engineer from Delhi, India. His personal story aligns with NextBillion's values and why we do what we do.

Kartik was born visually impaired in India. After high school, while applying to study technology, he was denied a chance to study at India's top tech university due to his disability. However, with support from a mentor and a community, Kartik was invited to Stanford on a a full-scholarship and studied Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning. He also went back to the university that denied him an opportunity, to change their rules & help them welcome people that are visually impaired. Kartik is now a full-time Software Engineer at Microsoft.

We believe that the millions of people with a disability who face similar challenges, have the potential to reach great heights if given an equal opportunity to prove themselves.
