Aakriti Kamal, Cura


“Being a foundHER has been one of my most valuable experiences in college. The power of having a community as a solopreneur is underrated and KS WELI does a commendable job at providing a great communityI have loved connecting with so many different women, and it’s inspiring  to see everyone working hard on what they’re passionate about. The KS WELI FoundHER Program brings together women from so many different walks of life and every interaction I have with my fellow FoundHERs leaves me feeling empowered and inspired.”

About the FoundHER(s)

I grew up in a small rural town in India where issues related to mental health were not only highly prevalent but also something I witnessed up- close in my family. Recognizing the lack of awareness surrounding mental health, not only within my family but also across millions of people in rural India, I entered college with a passion to combine psychology and business to create a scalable service that could solve the issues surrounding mental health.
