Class of 2021

Growing up in India, Singapore and the US, as the only child of a single mother, I was taught two things: independence and initiative. This innate ability to seek challenges and master my environment led me to working for Congress, the University of California system, and General Motors. I came to Michigan seeking an MBA/MPP so I could leverage my significant experience in data driven strategy change and subject matter expertise in policy to career switch into the intersection of strategy and technology. Michigan Ross' emphasis on gaining real-world experience allowed me to complete my MAP with Tencent's Smart Retail team, intern in venture capital with Trucks VC, and deploy design-thinking with D-Ford Palo Alto.
