Veenitha Balachandran

Veenitha drives youth empowerment in Malaysia. She believes in providing a platform for youth to pursue their passions in environmental work. Through the collaboration between Youths United for Earth (YUFE) and Roots and Shoots Malaysia, she helped organize the YUFE x Roots and Shoots Mentorship programme, which enabled her to engage with industry professionals who perform sustainability work. The exposure taught her that the possibilities are endless, and led her to transition from her original area of study of economics into environmental sciences.
