According to reports, Seema isn't sure what major she will choose when joining Harvard University, but has clear plans for the future. She was quoted by Yuwa India as saying, "I plan to start an organization for women in my village. This program would have two goals. One to start a small business that would train women to be financially independent. The other is to educate women about their rights and to build a bigger network to support women by providing essential vocational skills and knowledge."
