About

Personal Bio: I was never the tallest dude on the block nor I bagged the gold medals by scoring high marks in the exams nor I was the fastest kid. While growing up, I shared 320 Sq ft apartment with my siblings, parents and grandmother. I grew up in a small town that was right next to the 3rd largest slum in the world. So, poverty was not a novelty for me. I know what it feels like to be an outcast and denied and ignored. English was my 2nd language. I am an immigrant who came to US over 20-years back with a leap of faith and aspirations to get a higher education.

Little by little, everything adds up. It is up to us whether we succumb to it or turn into an asset.

I believe that the kinds of scarcities I experienced and the circumstances I grew up in created a huge advantage for me to achieve. I had the world’s best parents and world’s best siblings who instilled the values like work-ethics, compensating for lack of money by showering love, treating other people with respect, giving your best without complaining, and possessing a good character.

I have seen both sides and it has allowed me to create unique perspective towards life, success, failure, and winning. I truly appreciate every little opportunity life has offered to me.
