The World Through A Window: Learning To Dream-Venkat Panchapakesan Memorial Scholarship Application


hi I am Ananda Sai. My primary areas of
focus are machine learning and artificial intelligence. I was always
interested in the ‘how’ behind everything and I started out as a web developer at the age
of 12 It was my networking with Mr. Vitaly
Friedman, Editor-in-Chief of Smashing Magazine which really helped me expand
my boundaries. with his encouragement, I started out CoderTeen, my own company
when I was 13. It was intended to be a platform for youngsters interested in
coding to come together under a single umbrella, but the truth is I didn’t get
enough volunteers for it, because people in Kerala are mostly unaware of what
technical competence holds for them. When my dad decided to do a project for some tribal kids by building a smart classroom for them, I understood that kids, especially
from underprivileged areas had no idea about how technology can improve their lives
as a Google Venkat Panchapakeshan scholar I’d be able to act as an
inspiration for my peers in and around Kerala, to come together and share
their knowledge with less privileged kids I could provide them with proper
facilities proper mentorship and support programs, and above all, I can help them dream
and achieve their dreams
