Introduce yourself:

21 years old, Fremont, CA/Mumbai, India

My plans after graduation are to become an industry expert within tech, in areas such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, 5G, AI, or FinTech and eventually be a CEO of a company that creates change and disrupts major industries. 


How do you define success? 

 Success is a lousy teacher, and failure means you're on the path to success


What are your goals/dreams and where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

In 5 years I hope to have an MBA, and be a level 1 Manager in a company or hope to be working in Venture Capital as an Associate/Principal


What motivates you?

My family, friends, and the idea of being a philanthropist. In 2020 so much has happened, and all that has been very instrumental in motivating me to push myself harder instead of use the quarantine as an excuse for no productivity


What is something that you do (a habit or daily practice) that you believe helps you achieve your goals or be productive?  

 I think one habit of mine is to never settle on something, and always look for the next big thing. And at the same time do not day dream at the expense of the current task or moment in front of you.


Who is your inspiration and why? 

Steve Jobs, Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, Dhirubhai Ambani, Andy Grove, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk


Life motto or favorite quote?

 "The ones that are crazy enough to believe that they can change the world, are the ones that do"

-Steve Jobs


Anything else you want to share? 

I think the only thing I want to share is that listen and walk more than you talk. Learn more than you preach, and always be thirsty for knowledge and the next big thing
