Through this new website, students will be able to explore multiple career paths and get relevant information from credible blogs, articles and links. However, the vision behind this initiative goes far beyond professional success of students.

With the ethos of ‘Purpose before profit’, MyNeedToLive is a free, non-profit website dedicated to making a difference. The slogan is a direct representation of the main goals of the website and what it has set out to achieve.

MyNeedToLive is recruiting over 200 social media Everyday Role Models (previously known as social media influencers) to create content that will help support students in all aspects of their life. This unique model will ensure that millions of people will have access to up to date information and services.

Created for the betterment of students and education as a whole, this unique website is a commendable initiative that can bring real change to the lives of students all over the country.
