Alisha graduated from Harvard University with a B.A in Psychology and a secondary field in Economics in 2011. While at Harvard, she was the captain of the women’s squash team, and an All-Ivy/All-American player. She had the opportunity to visit Khelshala during its inception (2010) and since then, has always felt a personal connect to the organisation and the cause.
After graduating from college, she started her own business- OnCourse, which she has been running for the last 5.5 years. OnCourse is a creative and alternate education company that aims to bridge the gap between formal classroom education and real world skills. In addition, she was featured in India Today, and the Femina Women's Power issue as one of the 35 most influential women under the age of 35 in India in 2013.
She has been playing squash since the age of 8, and has represented India at the Asian & World Juniors as well as the South Asian Federation Games. She has also won the Indian Junior Nationals 5 times. She is now eager to give back to the squash society in as many ways as possible. Having visited Khelshala in the beginning, and after seeing Khelshala’s mission and goals, she is keen on contributing to, raising funds for, and spreading awareness about Khelshala in India.
