Namya Joshi: A Vibrant Edupreneur

Here’s another naari shakti inspiration from the fields of Ludhiana: sixteen-year-old Namya Joshi. She’s an ambitious, passionate, and incredibly energetic girl who loves to play Minecraft. In addition, she is a student at Ludhiana’s Sat Paul Mittal School and Microsoft’s official Minecraft Student Ambassador.

When she observed her pals struggle with their studies back in 2018, she thought, “Why not mix in some Minecraft gameplay with the lessons?” Namya, then in Class 6, hurried home to the drawing board and completed her first render — an Egyptian civilization. Her project was well appreciated. She calls her parents, grand-parents and principal her backbone. No doubt we can say that she is a support system to herself as she says, “If I cannot support and motivate myself nobody else can!” Her motto: “Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn, work hard and never give up your dreams, even if nobody else believes.”
