Education : St Joseph’s High School ( Class I to XII ), B.Tech Marine Engineering (final year) from TMI, Pune The best years of my life! I will forever be grateful for all the values and virtues which I have learnt in school. I learned that I was capable of more than I thought because of the constant motivation from my principal and teachers. Focusing on the power of efficient communication skills, winning and losing graciously, collaborative working, co curricular activities have enhanced my personality throughout school life. Being able to display my leadership skills on various occasions has been of paramount importance in college. Some of my fondest memories include the INMUN sessions, International Theatre festival, Social Service camp, singing and dancing in the morning assembly, being the President of the school council and many more.. Each and every event of my school life has helped me mould into the person I am today and I am eternally thankful.

Educational Qualification: Ryan International (St. Joseph’s High School, Panvel) Alumni, B.E. from Fr. Agnels College (Vashi), M.BA with Majors in Marketing and HR from Indian Institute of Management Rohtak Professional Profile: Ex-TCS Systems Engineer; currently working as Business Development Manager – It has been more than 12 years that I have passed out of Ryan International, and to this date, I remain forever grateful for what my alma mater has taught me. With gaining more experience, both in academic and professional life, growing wiser (hopefully!!), I have realized that nothing can substitute for the foundational years of one’s life. For me, the hallowed halls of Ryan International define the most formative years of my life, a time period which built me up and prepared me to pursue my dreams, to be a strong independent woman. The thing that stands out the most about Ryan International and makes it one of the most prestigious schools is its unique focus on extracurricular activities, along with strong academic rigor, backed by the most dedicated and knowledgeable faculty. Whenever I recall my experience there, I don’t just remember the academic discipline, but also a host of extra-curricular activities that my teachers motivated me to participate in, be it the INMUN sessions, the multiple debate competitions, social initiatives, being the Master of Ceremony for the host of events…the list goes on! This taught me how to juggle multiple priorities in life and come out with flying colors. I topped my Xth boards, then went on to pursue engineering in electronics and telecommunications from Fr.Agnels, passing with distinction, then cracked the CAT exam, scoring 99.4 percentile and finally passing out of IIM Rohtak as a Rank holder. I got a summer internship from (my dream company) and converted a PPO to join the company, rising through the ranks to become one of the youngest Business Development Managers in the Sales and Marketing team. Looking back, I can link all these instances where I succeeded, to the way my personality got honed in Ryan and the immense learning I could soak up there. I am eternally grateful to the institute, I am proud to call my Alma Mater – Ryan International.

St. JOSEPH HIGH SCHOOL (C.B.S.E. PANVEL) glorifies not only your knowledge but also brings out the best of you. The teachers here nurture us in such a way that securing best in school boards and entrance exams (in my case NEET UG) is no more arduous. I was an average student till 10th standard who secured 8.6 CGPA in 10 th boards. It would have been beyond the bound of my possibilities to get remarkable sore in 12 th CBSE board (95%) and cracking NEET UG, without strong and ardent support of all teachers, especially Ms. Chitra Ma’am and Ms. Lekha Ma’am, they being one of the most adorable mentors, guiding us in their own best method of teaching. It was their impeccable effort over us which pushed me towards this step of success. St Joseph High School indeed provides a platform with equal opportunity to each and every child be it below average (in my case ), or an average or a topper to prove themselves, developing confidence to achieve all their dreams. I can definitely say that my journey with SJHS has left forever footprints in my life. Talking about my present status, I have completed my graduation in bachelor of medicine and bachelor of surgery (M.B.B.S.) from SGSMC, KEM HOSPITAL and now preparing to pursue post-graduation in M.D. Radio-diagnosis.

I have spent 12 wonderful and enriching years at Ryan (SJHS Panvel). From what I have experienced, the school truly stands up to its motto of ‘Excellence and all round development’. You are given a wide variety of opportunities to explore your interests and pursue them. I have not only witnessed immense academic support here, but also a push to strive for excellence in other aspects. You are provided with platforms that help you grow more holistically. You are encouraged to hone your talents and soft skills. Activities and competitions, being part of the school council, going for camp are memories I still recollect and will always cherish. The fact that I am still in touch with my school friends and teachers is in itself a testimonial to the motivating and caring people I have met here. This place will, undoubtedly, continue to be a strong foundation stone for my journey ahead."

A good and strong foundation keeps the building standing while the forces of nature wreak havoc. Likewise, an individual’s journey to success, as he becomes independent, depends on the qualities he instills at school. I have been fortunate to have my life’s groundwork done right through Ryan International Group- a place that guarantees excellence not just at academics but also at overall personality development. Having led the School Council, a unique simulation of the ministry framework, I could procure a sense of leadership, responsibility, oratory skills and decision making. Above all, I could learn how to balance and manage everything in life- be it as small as giving an impromptu speech to as big as event management. I have met Chairman Sir- Dr. A.F. Pinto and Managing director- Madam Grace Pinto in person every year and thinking about their rigor and passion towards their mission of stimulating all round development of their students brings in positive energy in me even today. The knowledge acquired from texts is vital for being successful but what makes the success journey easier is the overall personality and smartness to deal with the abrupt hurdles. Thanks to Ryan for helping me realize this and equipping me with these skills right at the first steppingstone of my life.

Growing up as a Ryanite was one of the best blessings of my life. The Ryan Group made school not just about academics, but also about Values. I am most grateful for the very important life values that I learned from the Ryan Group. It gave me the opportunities to explore myself, which helped me develop and shape myself into the person I am today. My teachers, and the environment that the culture at Ryan provided, both challenged and nourished me at the same time, which was an essential support in helping me reach my highest potential. Studying at Ryan has been a beautiful journey of my life. Gratitude and reverence is all I will ever have for it.
