What brought you to Kelley?
For me, it’s a family thing. Kelley and Indiana University hold a special place in the lives of many members of my extended family, here in the US and abroad. We're Hoosiers at heart and Kelley grads. I'd been working for an Indian company as a business development consultant in the insurance services industry and I just knew it was time for a change. I was ready for exposure to new industries and was at the point in my career that I wanted to be on the fast track to reaching my goals.

What’s your advice to incoming students on how to make the most of their tIme at Kelley?
Kelley’s true power lies in students’ willingness to fully immerse themselves in the wealth of opportunities available at every turn. You have to commit to being engaged and open to any possibility that may come your way. Especially for international students, my advice would be to join in on the conversation, don’t hold back, and go all in.

What has been the highlight of your academic experience so far?
When I came to Kelley I was excited, yet equally nervous. The Kelley faculty, my fellow students, and my mentors reassured me that I had what I needed to make the most of my experience. The support I received from those people gave me the drive to succeed and inspired me to give back in the same way. I now am involved in a number of organizations and groups within Kelley and work with incoming students to ensure their transition is as seamless as possible.
