Describing myself with few adjectives doesn’t justify the competency that I have within to get the work done, and also I believe that action and experience speak louder than words. But there is one thing that always has been constant in my life is, I’m a very goal-oriented person and would cross every puddle and resolve any obstacle that comes along the way. I was born and raised in the port city of Gujarat called the Surat.
I grew up in an education-oriented family wherein my father who is an engineer and an established entrepreneur has worked day and night to make his dream company run successfully. My mother is an excellent homemaker. We are kind of a family where ideas and solutions are discussed over the dining table. With a negotiable interest and much influenced by my parents, I used to practice swimming, art and debating. Attending business conference during my under graduation course that was something I always looked forward to attending. Apart from the exposure in India, I have stayed in Canada for 3 months that gave me an exposure in the aspect of cultural diversity and expanded my horizon greatly and opened up a new world for me.
In my formative years, I have participated in various round table conferences of Spinout of Innovations and was selected as top 15 participants to attend. The major stepping stone during my college was my internship at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. The topmost institute of India and is listed world ranking. I was selected out of the 2000 participant and worked on the project: Education Innovation Bank: Decentralization Professional Development and Quality enhancement in Public Schooling of India. Apart from undergoing internship training, I was recruited as a Research associate at Dexter Consultancy Pvt.Ltd, Ahmedabad, India, in my last year of college. The nature of work included as Field Supervision, Team building and Training and Operational Planning and much more.
Handling my study, work and dissertation part made me responsible and mature. However, my real life work experience begins at Paramount Consultancy in Surat, India. As an Associate, my work is to bring in innovation and recruit more staff which eventually lead to a team of 11 from 3. From acquiring clients, preparing proposals to handling the financial management, setting up another branch gave me a great insight into the world of business.
Academically, I have pursued science stream in my high school which helped me to think analytically. To choose a course for my college, I had a little out of box thinking and opted for Liberal Studies course at Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, Gandhinagar. I majored in Business Administration ( Marketing) and Minor as my Economics. Though I performed rather ordinarily, since I was more inclined towards practical exposure which I have mentioned earlier like attending conference, internships and was recruited for a job from my university. Apart from all these, I have a huge appetite for traveling and have taken numerous trips. Words of Chanakya and Osho shaped me just as much as the periodical and worldly matters. The reason I opted University of Victoria is because, Institution here deliver pratical and career –oriented training so graduates can be confident that they have skills demanded by employers, It has played an important role in Canada economic performance, by greatly increasing the skill of workers and contributing to improved productivity.
?Averring that learning is a lifelong process, I wish to pursue my masters in Global Business. Considering that globalization has settled through and has overcome time and distance has made me realize that nothing is beyond our reach. One cannot limit themselves while pursuing dreams. The reason for pursuing my Masters from overseas and especially from the reputed institute is because of the advancement in the field of management and education system and not to forget the faculty. I wish to globalize our business to which I would need a professional learning exposure and the BEST one.
