We were one of the first batches of Nirma Institute of Technology and therefore we had the privilege of growing with the institute. We were one thriving family on a learning mission at the campus. Rigour, resilience, righteousness and responsibility embedded during the four years at engineering have been a stepping stone for my education in all future career stints, especially at Stanford. From the different courses taught, to the different events organized, to the various internships, interactions and paper and poster presentations, time at Nirma will always be an integral part of my journey. Post Stanford, I worked as a scientist at Amgen, in USA for nearly a decade. After doing my Executive MBA, now I run a family business based out of Mumbai. The journey of life- long learning that began at Nirma continues to inspire me to take challenges.
