Bloomington, Indiana, United States
I grew up in a boarding school in the foothills of the Himalayas in India, which followed the British Military regime as its curriculum and hence timeliness and hard work are two things that got ingrained into my personality. I graduated with the "Best Prefect" award, which is awarded to the best leader in the passing out class.
One of the greatest experiences I have had so far was spending two months in South Africa on an exchange program during the junior year of high school , during which I lived with a host family and learnt invaluable lessons about life and the South African culture. I went to school at the Saint Stithian's College in Johannesburg during the two months where I not only attended classes but also tried my hand at rugby and participated in community service at the local juvenile correctional facility. The highlight of the two month period apart from the amazing family I got to live with was Shark diving in Cape Town.
All of these experiences have taught me amazing life lessons that I could not have learned through my regular coursework. They have given me the courage and motivation to continue expanding my knowledge. In the future I dream of starting my own business, a process I have already begun to look into.
