Is it worth attending the Young India Challenge 2016 at IIT Delhi? by Harman Khurana
Answer by Harman Khurana:
I attended the Young India Challenge 2016 held at SRCC, Delhi. Let's divide my experience in 3 phases- Before, During and After YIC.
I began to research about previous YICs and what they incorporated. If you are the kind of person who would like to be involved in Change, you should go for the event.
We formed a WhatsApp group which really helped us make contacts and get to know each other well. I became friends with people even before seeing them in person.
I met the people I was interacting with since a month and it was a really overwhelming experience. When the Human Circle Team says that you will meet like-minded people, that is what exactly happens. You have so much to talk to about your journey till here and your dreams and passion.
The actual surprise came with the challenge we were supposed to solve.( I won't reveal much.) It really sets your mind racing and you try to bring together things you are passionate about with things that need change in the world.
It has been 3 months since the event. The people I met have become really close friends. I built a network which is a very important part on your journey ahead. I discovered what I am good at and have thought upon it clearly. Things are beginning to sort and I see the options that would take me to my dream.
Being a delegate at YIC was a wonderful experience and I hope its significance stays with me and helps me in my journey.
