My name is Archith Narendhra Seshadri and I am serving as the Vice President of Communications/Logistics for NetIP Atlanta (Network of Indian Professionals) -- www.netip.org
This year, we are working with several chapters across the US to raise money for charity as part of our Charity is Colorblind initiative.
How far has your education gotten you? How has your ability to learn and work together helped you in your career?
Unfortunately, for many people, education is not a readily available option. Many have to start working early to support their families.
