“Destiny played its dice when at a tender age of seven I was diagnosed with a muscle debilitating condition and my struggle started. In 2010 at the age of 14, when I was in the 8th Class, I got my motorized wheelchair and I was zooming around once again in my school compound along with my classmates… . With a 9.6 CGPA in class 10th and 80% in 12th and seven Scholar Badges under my belt with Blue Coat and Tie from DPS, Sushant Lok, Gurugram, I was ready for my JEE exam and the next phase of life out of the protected environment of the school. Scoring pretty well and getting admission calls from various institutes of repute, The NorthCap University was my pick for I got a branch of my choice and the accessibility to the whole campus.I must express my gratitude here because whatever little more was required for my accessibility on the campus, it was all constructed before my first day at NCU.With the support of my friends, teachers and staff, I have been lucky to complete two internships at Sapient. This has been the best experience of my life. The amount of involvement in work and weekend parties at Sapient made me feel so confident and ready for the next stage of life. Every budding young man feels excited and nervous at the same time at the mere thought of campus placement. You wait for the 7th Sem so anxiously and when the day arrives for the group discussion and personal interaction, you are literally sweating. But it has been a dream come true to have been placed in one of the Big Four. Finally, Ernst & Young is going to be the first step for a fruitful career for me. The journey has been long and arduous but my hard work and will has paid off in the form of this opportunity.In spite of all the obstacles and impediments I have faced in my life till now, I kept on believing in myself and never lost hope and always looked forward. With the support from my family, friends and NCU, I am ready to face the professional world.   Read more
