About Me

I am a passionate and straight forward engineer and student who is fascinated by technology, robots and simply all things electrical. I grew up in The Kingdom of Bahrain for the first 15 years of my life where I learnt valuable lessons and encountered unforgettable memories. Soon after, I joined a polytechnic college in my little hometown in India where I dove deeper into electrical and electronics engineering. By the end I received the gold medal for Best Outgoing Student which was my goal since the very first day. After this I joined KCT Coimbatore for B.E. in EEE through lateral entry and am currently studying there in my 3rd academic year. I am very active in my department association and clubs like HAM Club, Qubate Club (debate and quiz) and Robotics and Automation Club, where I am currently serving as secretary and EE division lead.

Languages Known

One of my best skills is talking and communication. A major aspect of that is because I spend a lot of time learning new languages. The reasons may include school elective, natural interest or future preparation. I absolutely love meeting new people and am constantly in contact with the friends I made online. So knowing more languages is a boon to me.

Frequently Asked Questions

Professional

I have good technical knowledge and am very logical and practical with my approach. I have great leadership skills and can get any task done with a calm attitude. I’m a team player. I am an excellent negotiator and people person.

I’m not a great coder. I can write good algorithms and am good with data, but I do lack sufficient knowledge in programming. I never learnt any programming officially due to my admittance in polytechnic instead of high school. However, I did teach myself all the basics and am a fairly decent coder in python thanks to online resources.

I have experienced this many times and to be frank, I work best under pressure. All nighters are common for me. Over the years I have developed techniques to circumnavigate this like prior time management, resource planning and so much more.

From projects to international competitions, I have dealt with my fair share of troubles. Since, I was usually the leader of my teams, it would fall on me to cheer them up and boost morale. I learnt that a good distraction can help tremendously. Food, a short stroll or even a little singing session have all helped me encourage my team. Finally I have good speaking skills and can convince my team to keep moving forward.

Although this doesn’t happen often, there are two ways to look at this. One, I simply have to negotiate and discuss with my superior and try to tip their stance. Two, accept that I might be wrong even if I don’t see it right away.

Personal

I have good communication skills and am a friendly person. I absolutely enjoy meeting new people, so I have no problem talking to complete strangers and get to know them. This had led to me gaining lots of acquaintances. I believe one of the greatest boons in life is having a big network of brilliant and unique people.

I can lose my temper sometimes. I am a very confident person, sometimes, borderline overconfident.

Although I don’t get much of it during college days, I try to rest my mind and focus on something more entertaining. I watch Formula 1 every weekend. I make youtube videos when I get the time. I love going on long bike rides to the foothills. But predominantly, I listen to audiobooks. That’s what I do every night before bed.

Since I grew up in the Arabian Gulf, I’m going to have to say my favourite is Chicken Shawarma. But I also enjoy a good Pizza and spinach with rice.

I want to live in the most exciting cities, meet the most interesting people and really make a difference in whatever I do. I want to do more philanthropy as it, not unlike anyone else, make me fulfilled. I also want to write a book one day. My ultimate goal is to be chosen in Forbes 30 under 30. After that, Time’s 100 most Influential People. I know it’s ambitious, but they say you can never dream too big. And finally, I’d like to be buried in Mars. ;D

I'd love to hear from you
