A little about me:

Bachelor of Commerce student

social media

I am just another curious caffeine-dependent student trying to understand the field of entrepreneurship and Innovation. I find it very fascinating that everything we have today was just an idea in someoneʼs head. Oh by the way, I am Yashika. I am a first year student pursuing Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Auckland. There are few things I am really passionate about. One of
them is the variance of cultures everywhere. My interest in experiencing different ones to widen my mind and spirit made me choose New Zealand for my undergraduate studies, I am originally from India. I love baking sweet delicacies and working out, definitely helps in balancing the extra weekend cupcakes! My other interests include reading non-fiction books and learning new things.

I am a part of ‘MERGING CULTURESʼ team. It fuses my enthusiasm for traveling and innovation. The best education Iʼve had in my life is by traveling. My team is challenging the way we travel today. We aim to create a platform to connect tourists and local people for an enriched cultural exchange. Well, the perk being having friends worldwide. Oh and itʼs fantastic to work with equally-energetic people, teamwork definitely makes the dream work!

‘Where does innovation come fromʼ?
This question has always intrigued me and that is why I am a part of Summer Lab 2019. I had always wondered how to identify ideas and turn them into reality? Summer Lab seemed the perfect step to get ahead in my career.

Create and make space, mentors, other entrepreneurialmindset people, workshops….what else could I ask for? Did I mention free pizzas? SUMMER LAB IS CREATING A
CULTURE OF INNOVATION.
By the end of Summer Lab programme, I intend to have a basic understanding of different entrepreneurial aspects. I want to have understood how to validate ideas, let go some ‘just seeminglyʼ good ideas and be open to change. Also, have some amazing friends and memories!
