As a new-age leader, what is the motivation that fuels your daily routines?
Passion is the bedrock of my daily endeavours, driving me to excel in my chosen path.

Could you tell us about the unique experiences Manipal Institute of Technology offers and what did you learn from the campus beyond academics?
Delhi being my home town, but it was at MIT Manipal where I discovered a world beyond academics. Nestled in a small town with a mere 3km radius, the campus bloomed with diversity - medical, dental, mass communication, management, and more, attracting over 20,000 students and 1500 faculty. The cosmopolitan atmosphere and pristine surroundings offered a unique environment to connect with people from various states and cultures. Embracing hostel life, I leaned on friends for support, sought mentorship from seniors, and guidance from the warden and teachers. These experiences shaped my self-confidence and honed my leadership skills, preparing me for future challenges with ease and grace.
