He expresses: “I was infected with SDGs when I was 13 years old. I was in 9th grade when I attended the school exhibition themed on the Global Goals “Sajag Nagrik, Samridh Samaj”. At that time I realised that we need to make awareness about the UN SDGs and Human Rights infectious, not only to a few but also to the global world. The task is massive and the time is too short. I continue my journey to promote Human Rights and SDGs through my Videos and other social campaigns on issues like Girl Child Education, STOP Bullying and Disability Awareness, etc.” Ayush has hosted many Tweet chats on Global Goals including that of Microsoft.
Chopra truly believe, success is not in just winning alone, but taking people along and winning together.
