I am a second year masters student at
Information Networking Institute, Carnegie Mellon University specializing
in Computer Systems, Networking and Security.
I was born and spent most of my life in India, before moving to United States for my masters degree. After ranking 7 out of 400,000 students in my state Tamil Nadu, I opted for Electronics and Communication Engineering at College of Engineering Guindy, Anna University, Chennai. I was awarded National Merit Scholarship by the Government of India to pursue my undergraduate degree.
During my undergraduation, my foucs was on networking and communications and I opted for courses like Computer Networks, Wireless Communication, Optical Networks and Satellite communication, to widen my horizons in the field of Networking.
I completed Cisco Certified Networking Associate certification (CCNA) during my undergraduation and later joined Starent Networks, Bangalore as a software developer. Starent Networks has been recently acquired by Cisco Systems and is now known as Cisco Mobile Internet Technology Group (MITG).
'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness
which scares us. We ask ourselves - who are we to be brilliant, beautiful,
talented, and fabulous. But honestly, who are you to not be so?
We were born to express the glory of god that lives in us. It is not in some of us, it is in all of us. While we allow our light to shine, we unconscioulsy give permisson for others to do the same. When we liberate ourselves from our own fears, simply our presence may liberate others'
