  • Dedication towards my approach “ work smart and play hard"
  • An early start to leadership role makes you learn the smallest integrities of the trade and helps to learn a lot.

  •  leaning how different people react to the same by scenario. 
5. What's your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?
  • Earn while you learn in college time can be the best support system one can get.
  • Learning how different people react to the same scenario is the best teaching a student can get.
