Deeksha Prakash, Program Manager, comes to AHF with a background in philanthropy, finance, and international development. Born in Bihar, India, Deeksha grew up all over the world and came to the United States for college. After working in international development in DC and then finance in NYC, she made the move to California to pursue a graduate degree in international education policy analysis at Stanford University. Deeksha has spent the last several years working in philanthropy and more recently launched her own professional photography business. When not getting exceedingly excited about AHF’s projects and helping things run smoothly, Deeksha can be found exploring with either her camera or her two children, and sometimes both.
