Sakshi Jain completed her undergraduate degree in 2017 in Economics at the University of Waterloo, where she was a part of the Honours Arts and Business program. Her final year thesis focused in maternal mortality rates in low and lower middle-income countries. An international student from India, she interned at the public policy department of the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Employment, and Infrastructure which peaked her interest in public policy.

Throughout her undergraduate career, she worked as a student success facilitator, conducting workshops revolving around various aspects of leadership, such as effective team meetings, conflict management, and global intelligence for domestic, international and exchange students. She has also had several internships in the field of marketing and communications, and holds a Certified Associate in Project Management certification.

Apart from academics, she likes to read and travel. In 2016, she spent a semester in the Netherlands on an exchange term and travelled around central and western Europe. She hopes to continue to work and travel abroad after the MIPP program.
