Maryam Ishtiaq

“There aren’t many summits that are catered towards our community. So when you have an event like this, you should absolutely attend. It’s a blessing to find and connect with people outside of the social media world. Our community is full of so many well connected and talented individuals!”

Lisha Rajput

Melanie Chandra

actor, producer, techie

“I loved the camaraderie of this community! Everyone is so eager to support and elevate each other. Slashies are full of inspiration, whether you are building a product, a brand, or even a career in entertainment. And you'll meet a ton of like minded individuals that can help you reach your goals!”

Jon Madray

Megha Rao

“We give young people a real life look into the world of opportunity. We provide examples of failures, success, social media influence, time management - things that are relevant in today’s world. We inspire others to dream big and chase their goals”

Felicia Singh
