My name is Bonkuri Sushma, I was born and brought up in a remote village named Dasanna Gudem of Jangaon district. I have graduated in B.Com(CA). I loved going to church with my aunt and grandparents as a child. I got very interested in involving in children and youth programmes after I completed my high school. While I was pursuing my graduation, I was introduced to Shining Stars, as a teacher, in our church and worked as a centre leader for about 2 years in the child development centre that was started in my village. That helped me to grow more in my leadership and character.

After my graduation in June 2020, God gave me an opportunity to join as a full-time staff with Shining Stars Centres for Youth Development.

I am very thankful to God and immensely happy to be a part of the Vision of Shining Stars in RAISING THE NEXT GENERATION of LEADERS and hoping to learn and grow more in the years to come.
