Your profile as an entrepreneur
I am a 16 year old student of class 11 from MAHARAJA SAWAI MAN SINGH SCHOOL JAIPUR INDIA. I have been involved in environmental conservation activities since the age of 11 years. Im a very active member of the 'Conservation club' of our school. I also run an environment conservation page on face book by the name of R4, which means Reduce , Reuse, Recycle and Restore. I have organized a segregated waste collection drive during a marathon in my city with a message that " Marathons should generate a message and not WASTE". I have also organised a year long E-waste collection drive in my school, and we handed over the collection to a firm which works for safe disposal of the same. Through this activity we promoted Reduse and Recycle. I also did an "Old Books collection drive" in my school and the collected books were given to underpriviledged children through NGOs. Through this activity we promoted Empathy as well as recycling and re-using the old books and notebooks. All these activities fetched me a prestigious award for 'ENVIRONMENTALIST OF THE YEAR' in my school. on seeing my passion towards this project and towards sustainable living my school ,teachers and my parents are all very supportive and Im sure together we will make it a successful project.
