What brought you to Oxford Saïd?
Born in India and raised in America I have always had a global outlook. My early career focused on using technology to reduce the global literacy gap at two start-ups in New York City and Mumbai. The work was engaging and challenging but I was conscious that to make the impact I strive for I would need to further my education in the field. Thanks to the Pershing Square Scholarship I was able to embark on an MBA at Saïd Business School.
Oxford Saïd has a unique focus on sustainable business models which filters through everything we do here. I have developed a complete understanding of how organisations work and how to implement sustainable solutions at scale. I have been exposed to giants in the field, massively influential change-makers who have shaped my view of what’s possible.
And perhaps most importantly, I have made connections that will last a lifetime. A global network of incredibly driven and smart peers whom I am lucky enough to now call friends.
After I graduate, my resolve to work on issues affecting marginalised communities and issues related to inequality is stronger than ever.
What impact do I want to have on the world?
I would like to ensure that new technologies are used, not as a source of division, but to create and enhance a flourishing and equal society.
