Dhairya Pujara is a 25 year old young entrepreneur based out of Philly. He graduated out of Drexel University, Philadelphia in 2012 with a Masters in Biomedical Engineering. Dhairya quit his healthcare IT job in one day and took off to Africa for 5 months to work in a rural hospital in Mozambique. Once he arrived, he realised that even though he had a Masters in Biomedical Engineering and new four language, that he had to keep learning as none of that was relevant in Mozambique, where they spoke portuguese. So, Dhairya learnt a little portuguese, organized the first ever TEDx conference in the country of Mozambique and created first of its kind rural training program for the doctors with unused medical equipment donation that they receive from around the world but have no idea on how to use it. After this stint, Dhairya came back to the USA and started by own social organisation (Founder, CEO) Ycenter (http://y-center.org/) - which is essentially an outside-the -classroom learning program service provider for college and university students to go out to Africa and India and work on keystone projects with the communities, ultimately created a global impact. Recently, Dhairya won the Philly DoGooder award and was covered in press by Philly in Focus, HuffPost, Flying Kite Media. He has given multiple talks at Drexel University, and the most recent one at Wharton School of Business at Penn. Dhairya have hosted 2 global TEDx conferences at Drexel. Here's a few side notes on Dhairya's achievements...
