Underscoring the impact of education and determination on one's career trajectory, the story of a Bengaluru woman's bold move is taking the internet by storm. Feeling undervalued at her startup job, she made a decision to quit and pursue a prestigious degree to take control of her future.
Social media user Adithya Venkatesan, who shared her story on social media, stated that the woman believed that her lack of an Ivy League education was holding her back from getting promotions and recognition at work. So she took matters into her own hands. Venkatesan revealed that she left the startup and enrolled in an Ivy League university.
After completing her degree, she returned to the same company. However, this time, things were different. She now commanded a salary that was more than double what she was making before. Venkatesan even claims that the increase was closer to two and a half times her original pay.
Since being shared, the post has garnered over 180,000 views and varied reactions. Many took to the comments section to hail her decision, while a few found it inspirational.

Take a Look at the Post:

A user commented, "Funny how all my focus went on the fact that the startup survived. Jokes apart, something that's intriguing to me is asking if she is being taken seriously now after the degree. Even though she had the degree, the people who didn't find value in her work were still the same.”
"This is a success story, but it's also kind of sad that we judge people's competence and intelligence by a degree from an Ivy League school when we all know that attending an Ivy League school does not necessarily equal competence, intelligence, etc." wrote another user.
Another user wrote, "First time hearing of Ivy League snobbery at a startup. I thought that culture was limited to IB and Management Consulting."
