Urbashee’s Path

“A lot of the crucial steps that brought me to where I am today happened during my teenage years, and that helped me break out of the economic barriers that life threw at me,” she says. “If I hadn’t broken out of these barriers at the crucial age between high school and college, I could have been in a very different place now.”
