Prerna Laddha, Program Officer, One Future Fellowships
Tell us about yourself!
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Political Science. I’m an extreme introvert. I love cooking and sometimes it works as therapy for me. People say I’m a good listener.
Tell us about what you do at One Future Collective.
I help plan, organise and execute the OFC Fellowships and Institutes. I also volunteer with other projects under OFC that interest me.
Why One Future Collective?
The work culture at OFC makes it different from others, where everyone gets to voice their opinions and are responsible for their roles completely. So many things happen organically. Also, the verticals and themes that we focus on collide with my areas of personal interests.
Your favourite One Future Collective memory.
The first Town Hall meeting — it was memorable for me because we discussed and re-discussed all minute details with a focus on making our work and impact better, more efficient and tangible, which I feel was a very thoughtful exercise.
What inspires you?
The thought that I could make someone’s life better, which in turn will also help me learn and grow as a person.
Top three book/song recommendations or both.
The last book I read was Chup! By Deepa Narayan- it was an eye opener and helped me instrospect. Songs which I generally enjoy (right now) are Tu Kisi Rail Se Guzarti Hai from the movie Masaan, Moh Moh Ke Dhaage, and Ye Dooriyan from the movie Love Aaj Kal.
