Background

I am an international student pursuing a Master of Information Technology, currently in my second year. I grew up in India where I moved around seven different cities for study and work. 

Before moving to Melbourne for my Master’s I was working as a Technology Analyst for little over four-and-a-half years. I completed my bachelor’s degree in engineering in 2014 with a major in Information Technology. Since August 2019 I have been working part-time as an educator at an OSHC centre. 

With every city movement and every work commitment, I have been introduced to new cultures which has shaped me to be the person I am today. 

I was interested to join the MGA because the MGA has played a very important role in my first semester to help me grow a sense of belonging to the University. I opted for the position of the Coursework Officer to act as a liaison with appropriate bodies in relation to issues pertaining to coursework graduates. 

I am very enthusiastic, and I love helping people. I am a strong advocate of speaking up for ourselves. I consider myself as an environmental enthusiast and you will quite often find me speaking up for the students or the environment.

Personal Interests

I am a very creative person who prefers to crochet, create string art artifacts or repurpose waste in my leisure time rather than Netflix. I am a lazy fitness afficionado with the responsibility of taking down one Nutella jar at a time 😉
