Hi, my name is Kavitta. I’m a recent graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara. My other roles include friend, leader, innovator, and daughter. My mom always told me I should write a book, so this is my millennial version of it. If you’re an employer, I hope this helps you delve deeper into both my personality and my content creation skills. If you’re a friend, I hope you get the chance to read about my appreciation for you. If you’re just a passerby, I hope you learn something new and meaningful.
Life has been busy lately, but in the best way possible. The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far is that the most important thing we can do in this lifetime is learn. I’ve grown up in an era of complete technological transformation and had a front seat ride in watching the world reinvent itself at light speed. Being raised in an entrepreneurial household taught me that changing the world isn’t as easy as it looks, but with resiliency and luck it’s possible.
As an alumni of UC Santa Barbara, I’ve had the privilege of being immersed in this campus for four incredible years, allowing me to see every feature and flaw. College has shown me that the majority of your higher education comes from outside of the classroom. Taking risks allowed me to grow far past my comfort zone and become an agile problem solver. Now I want to use my leadership, marketing, and entrepreneurial skills to create my own innovations to add to the world.
I’m currently working on Nectir, a communication platform for education that encourages collaborative learning through connecting students in the same classes. After seeing communication between students, TA’s, and Professors being an issue on my campus, the idea of Nectir was born to solve it. I’m so excited to build this idea from the ground up with my team of visionaries and challenge myself with something that has no “instruction manual”. I believe that higher education has a long way to go before it’s perfect, but I want to be a part of the solution rather than just complain about the problem.
