Meet Pratham Sharma, Aligarh Muslim University ‘ 21
“Coming from a STEM background, from the skills, my learnings, and the experiences that I have gathered, I wanted to build a product that does make an impact and is not just in the market plethora. Through Develop For Good, I got an opportunity to work with an incredible team of 7 amazing designers and developers to build a mobile application that will enable unprivileged students to pursue Medical Education and get career mentorship. I'm grateful for this opportunity to work with such a diverse team, and I can't wait to see the results of the team's hard work!”
