From an early age, my parents nurtured me to become a responsible and productive person in the society by inculcating values of self-discipline, responsibility, and integrity. My parent’s wishes for my life have always been to become a successful entrepreneur or a doctor. Amidst my aspirations of fulfilling the wishes of my parents, I have grown to become aware of my leadership skills that I can use to make a more meaningful impact in the society. Therefore, in my entire academic journey and particularly in high school, I have taken on leadership roles in different areas in my quest for exposure and experience in leadership.

In this connection, I have embraced the fact that leaders cannot afford to be biased on any basis as this is totally counterproductive. In future, I desire to play higher leadership roles to make a more meaningful contribution to the welfare of the society.
