Sohum teaches Integrated Humanities to Grade 7 and English to Grade 8. He has an MBA in Business Strategy, an MS in Finance from Case Western Reserve University and an M.Com and BMS degree from Mumbai University. Most recently, he was working with Udaan India Foundation, which educates children from low income communities in the vicinity of Chandivali and Powai.
He is also a Teach For India Fellow where he taught English and Social Studies to Grades 6 and 7. He is still very invested in his TFI kids and his experience teaching them has amply clarified the disparity in the quality of education between private and municipal schools.
However, his school kids and many others from classes his friends taught have proved that what you can achieve doesn’t have to be a function of where you come from. One of his favorite quotes is by Bill Clinton, where he says that ‘Our common humanity matters more than our differences’.
