I studied a masters in International Business Management and graduated in 2012 from Kingston.
Kingston was one of the few choices I had to pursue my higher studies in London. The best part about Kingston is that it is one of the topmost young universities which gives it a perfect blend of the traditional approach and a contemporary outlook towards work and education. European accreditations for the Business School were another motivating factor for choosing Kingston as my place to study.
Bonding. Growing. Exploring.
I have not been physically back to the University yet but I often find myself reminiscing the times I spent there. You see, one might take the student out of Kingston, but it is impossible to take Kingston out of the student.
Oh! I surely am very much in touch with most of my batch-mates worldwide. The friends I made at Kingston define my personality to some extent. We connect with each other on a regular basis and try and meet as often as possible.
I expected to stay back and work in London after my graduation. However, life had some better plans for me than I had for myself. I am back to my home country, serving as Managing Director to one of the topmost International Schools in the region, of which I am extremely proud. I have a better purpose and a better sense of living than I have ever had.
Academically, being awarded the Scholarship at the start and the Dean's Prize at the end of my postgraduate course. And, on the work front, setting an excellent work culture where everyone loves their job, has been my greatest achievement.
Dream and dream big. Keep moving and work hard. More than anything, find joy in whatever you do. You can take on the world if you are at peace with yourself.
Just this morning whilst starting for work, my little niece stopped me and asked me to play with her. Amidst the rush and hurry, I dropped everything aside and had the best 20 minutes I could with her. She is the one who makes me laugh the most.
An ideal weekend would be spending some quality time with my little niece and nephew, take them out to the park, play with them, talk to them and connect them more to nature. When they are not around, I spend time reconnecting with old friends, cooking and meditating.
I am a simple and an extremely spiritual person with few expectations out of life, believe in sacrifices and would rather spend my life making people who love me, happy.
