We had the good fortune of connecting with Aneisha Gupta and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Aneisha, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I consider risks as a great method for anyone who is willing to challenge themselves, and learn valuable life lessons along the way. People take on risks with the primary goal of overcoming them, and lingering hopes that they will hopefully end up in a better state than they started out with, or receive any accolades in return. I personally take on risks to challenge myself, and increase my experience and efficiency when overcoming and dealing with them. Risks have a played a significant role in my life/career, as I find myself being presented with risks on a weekly basis in all aspects of my life. Due to my familiarity, and perseverance when dealing with them, I find myself am being able to overcome them relatively faster pace. Specifically with Tutoring 360°. I dealt with the risk of starting the organization as a whole. As a junior in high school, I didn’t want my grades to be affected when dedicating my time to the organization. Initiating the organization was a huge risk that I wanted to take in the beginning. However, with efficient time management and organizing, I was able to overcome this risk and develop the organization. I believe people should take on all risks, no matter what the odds may be. It’s safe to say that taking on that risk has led to Tutoring 360° to becoming one of my most prized achievements. We have been publicized by many social media/magazine forums, recruited over 50 volunteers nationally, and addressed the needs of more than 100 student nationally. We’re also well on our way to raising $1000 dollars for UNICEF, and my heart couldn’t be more full.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As a community leader, I find myself dedicating time into Tutoring 360° with the ultimate goal of helping communal and inner-city poverty youth during the midst of the pandemic. Initiating and running the organization has not been easy, as I find myself with a lot of work to manage within the organization, as well as from school. However, with time management, motivation, and efficient organizing, I have been able to overcome this challenge and make a significant impact in the community. I’ve learned to always believe that you can achieve whatever you put your mind to, despite what anyone says or believes. I want the world to know that perseverance is key when overcoming all challenges, and never get demotivated while looking at your competitors. Achieving your own goals on your own time, will help your story prosper and affirm your purpose in this world. Tutoring 360° has made my heart so full, knowing that we as kids, could make a huge contribution to this world with just a little bit of effort and a lot of motivation.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If I were to visit Plano with my best friend, I would take them to Legacy West. We could go for a little outing to have fun and eat delicious food. We’d first go to Legacy Hall, and have some crepes while watching the band that performs there outside. After that, we would walk around and go shopping in a multitude of shops Legacy West has to offer. While shopping, we could visit some of the vending stands that Legacy West keeps in the middle of the road for buyers. We’d meet the talented creators behind these stands, and do some more shopping. To end off out day, we would take pictures in front of the lighted water fountain. If time permits, we may go sightseeing in Dallas to Reunion Tower or a stroll around downtown.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The executive board of Tutoring 360° also deserves well recognition for contributing to the success of Tutoring 360°. The executive team includes: Shriya Jain (Vice President), Swetha Venkat (Public Relations), Nancy Yan (VP of Outreach), Anika Guin (VP of Outreach), Ali Moussa (Webinar Lead), Swathi Rudravajjala (Secretary), Maryam Arshad (Social Media Manager), and Annie Zhu (Head of Interview).
