Kartik Krishnan

Kartik Krishnan was born and raised in Mumbai, a city where the two extremes — the haves and the have nots — live in close proximity. He comes to DSI with a desire to equip himself with the skillsets required to try and leave a more balanced landscape in India, where everyone has access to a better quality of life through good education and healthcare systems. His prior work experience includes working with a management consultancy firm, volunteering as a teacher in a government-run school for children from low-income households in Mumbai and interning on a healthcare project in rural Bihar, India.
