Education: Master of Technology in Biological Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar, India

As a child, I was very quiet and disciplined. I lacked the mischievousness, which is otherwise evident in children of my age. My uncles say that I was very inquisitive and asked questions they had no answer to. At one point, I got interested in the military and wanted to become a spy. Later when I was old enough to make decisions, I found science to be a better career option for me than the military. Securing admission at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and qualifying in Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) are the major accomplishments that I am proudest of. IIT was a dream that I had never thought would come true. GATE is probably the only exam that I cleared solely based on my retained knowledge and without studying. The decision to drop out of Army School has totally changed my perception of success. It made me more resilient and ceased my fear of failing. Had I not dropped out, perhaps I wouldn’t have been where I am today. The IIT dream might not have been fulfilled. The idea of taking an initiative to improve the public education system caught my attention towards the Teach For Nepal Fellowship. I had pictured myself teaching school children for a short while. Working as a Fellow, I believe that I would be able to learn a lot about teaching and explore the techniques that would make the students learn faster and better. While doing so, I would be able to work on my interpersonal communication skill which is one of my weaknesses. I believe that I am a man of science. I want to become a university professor and dedicate the rest of my life to doing and teaching science. The takeaways from my Fellowship journey would help me to deal with students at higher academic levels.

Let's stay in touch.
