Bhubaneswar: When youngsters are busy in clicking selfies and posting on the social media platform in a bid to garner likes and social acceptance, this young Odia girl has totally different aspirations from life and is working hard to achieve it. At 22, Ananya Singh has carved a niche for herself in the international arena with sheer determination and hard work. She has the attitude of a girl next door but her profile seems intimidating when one has a look into it.

She is presently the Regional Ambassador to Afghanistan and the Global Peace Chain's Global Peace Ambassador for India of Tunza Eco-Generation powered by UNEP and Samsung Engineering, South Korea. Earlier she was a mentor - Game Theory and Economics, Summer of Science - Maths and Physics Club, IIT Bombay; Member, editorial team - Novak Djokovic Foundation; Translator-Editor, The Climate Trackers; 1st Youth Prime Minister of Odisha; Yale Young Global Scholar Alumni Ambassador; Global Ambassador for Kosmos Journal and blogger for the SPAN magazine (US Embassy in India) & The Huffington Post (US Edition).

A student of BJB Autonomous College doing her graduation in Economics, this girl was also the youngest person and the only female participant from India at NextGen@ICANN64, Kobe, Japan in March, 2019. 

Talking to OMMCOM NEWS, Ananya Singh said, “I am looking forward to be in Vladivostok, Russia as a Fellow for the Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) which is scheduled to be held in July 2019.”

At a personal level, she was very much impressed by the friendly and technology driven Japan.”

It will be difficult to believe but she is also the topper in her department in College. When asked how she is able to juggle all these activities in such a smooth manner, she candidly replies, “It is all about your will power, vision, interest, focused attitude and the management of time. Rest comes easily.” 

Hailing her mother as her inspiring mentor, she said, “My mother always encouraged me and acted as a catalyst pushing me forward and realizing my dreams.”

Ananya hopes to be a professor in Economics someday which will allow her to teach the students as well as learn in the process.
