I always believe in striking a balance in all phases of my life: be it academic, professional or personal. My perception of a balanced life is excelling in all aspects of life and not giving emphasis on any particular one. With this thinking in my mind, I did my engineering from XXXXXX, where in that span of 4 years, I presented and published two technical papers on Entrepreneurial Engineering and was the Head of NCC Unit at the same time. As the Head, I tried to learn and inculcate in myself the importance of unity and discipline along with ability to manage people. At the same time, owing to my inclination towards energy saving methodologies, I became the General Secretary of XXXXX Club. While in my final year, I got an opportunity to enhance my leadership skills as the Co-Convenor of Fest, which is the second largest engineering festival in North XXXX. As the Co-Convenor, I managed 7 out of 11 teams, thus helping in making this festival a grand success. After completing my graduation, I worked with XXXXXXXXXX for almost 18 months. During my work, I got an opportunity to work with two different clients and interacted with them about requirement changes, defects, and overall progress and created test scenarios accordingly and performed system and regression testing.

At XXXXXX, I obtained an exceptional performance rating for conducting the project planning of its new two wheeler facility. With all these experiences, I decided to make a career in consulting. Riding on my belief to maintain a balance and my passion for event management, I joined Team XXXXXXX as an Executive Member, which helped enhance my leadership and team skills through organizing various business summits and management fest at XXXXXXXX. On a lighter note, my friends also describe me as simple, hardworking, humble, team player and a good poet. I have always wanted to pursue consulting as my career ahead. Being engrossed in a lot of extracurricular activities I have developed a strong inclination to problem solving and analysis of situations, thereafter optimizing on a strategy.
