In my country, I studied in Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal. I did my Bachelors in Engineering in Mechatronics at MIT. I chose France because of the quality of education, historical value and the encouraging regulations for Indian students. In France, ESSEC is one of the best schools for business and that was one of the most important reasons to come here. The Tour de France also is another factor, albeit for recreational viewing purposes. I aspire to land a CDI once I complete my schooling in France and live here for a few years.
A little bit more about me
I’m an endurance athlete. I cycle long distance and take part in randonnees (who’s organizer is Audax Paris). I’m also a long distance runner aiming to do my first full marathon in 2019. I’m also an Ironman 70.3 finisher who’s taking part in Ironman 70.3 Cascais in September 2019. Apart from the athletics bit, I watch TV shows, movies and listen to progressive rock. I love solo travel and prefer that to group travel.
My role as an E-Ambassador
I see the role as a bridge between anxious students coming to a relatively strange country like France and the necessities of life here. After coming to France, I have realized the mental strength required to live alone (away from family), cook for myself and manage studying in an intensive course. I would like to talk about discipline, time management and know-hows for incoming students. For example, if a student wants to know where to buy his/her home country products, make a guide, etc. Also, I would additionally be interested to write about nearby places around Paris where students can go on a budget friendly trip.
