Born and brought up in India, I have been very fortunate to be living amidst a plethora of cultures that my country offers. In spite of tremendous diversity, the cultures somehow found a way to blend so beautifully. This interwoven expression is evident in the ancient Indian architecture. I can never forget the day I stepped in front of the magnificent Taj Mahal, in Agra. As a child I felt mesmerized, and quickly realized that human capabilities are immense and that one should tap ones own capabilities to the maximum.
Moving to Chicago, and to study under a ‘Miesian’ curriculum, was an opportunity I knew I couldn’t miss. I got to know fast, how much there was to learn, and how much there was to do. Even after working with amazing professors for five years, the thought of learning and sharing something new still excites me. I am ready to channelize all the things I have learnt in to practical experience, and along the way exchange my set of skills and knowledge with other colleagues.
I would like to thank you for considering me, and would like to share with you that I am a very hardworking, sincere, diligent, social person, who is always motivated to acquire new skills. I will bring with me to the table the passion that will not only drive me to work hard but will also encourage others around me.
