Biography: The geographic, economic and political location of my village has made it such that the vast majority of my county officials question its existence. The educational condition is so dismal that my father never had the opportunity to go to school and my mother still cannot believe that there is an educational institute as large as Tohoku University, where I now study. I left my small village in India for the modern lights of Japan and the internationally renowned education of Tohoku University and I will not let anything deter my success.

I study Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Japan’s prestigious Tohoku University. I am fascinated by technology and the automobile design which is why I became involved with Tohoku University’s Formula Team (TUFT) – a club working on formula cars and electrical vehicles and participates in various competitions internationally. TUFT also works on design, manufacturing and team management of vehicles. I am confident, a team player, and I always accept new challenges and learning opportunities which has made my life in Japan very active.

After graduation, I plan to join a multinational automobile company and to use my skills to bring improvements and innovation in the design of automobiles. With this experience, I will be well suited for a Master’s degree in technology and management, which will bring me closer to my aim of becoming a global leader in the field of technology innovation andwhich I will leverage for the betterment of our global village.
