“Education can change society!”- It is this belief and passion that has lead to  Amita working with children and parents towards creating a world of successful learners and with her brand Highq

Amita has a Masters Degree in Economics and International Economics having studied both Math and Economics at a high level.

With a clear belief that education can help break the glass ceiling, Amita’s well researched programmes provide a platform where education is imparted in a holistic manner with the intent of creating the next generation of well balanced individuals. She believes education is more than mere teaching but in fact mentoring and this is what her programmes do – teaching, mentoring and guiding students globally towards maximising their potential.

Education should be available to all”- Highq is just getting ready to launch the 1st ever e-learning platform which will provide a holistic learning experience to students and parents globally.
