The song 'Breakaway' by Kelly Clarkson is what describes me perfectly!
I was born in India in a family where education is considered the most valuable possession.
When I was giving my CBSE exams, I was determined to score high! And I did.I'll never forget the day I got to know my result.I was overwhelmed with a feeling of success. And that feeling of achievement is what drove me for the next 3 years. I joined one of the best Indian RECs.Enjoyed the 4 yrs there! I think that was the palce where I gre out of the 'importance of academia alone' and thought about making something out of myself.
Then like the majority of Indian Engineers I joined an IT company to be a part of the dynamic and omnipresent IT field in India.After a few years in this ocean am finally getting time now to rethink about where I started my journey and where I want to go. But all said and all done,no regrets!Now am back in the game, the game of competing against myself.
