I love kayaking early in the morning. It is 6 A.M., late July and while most of my peers are sleeping, I’m already out in my kayak. The morning sky provides me with the perfect backdrop for my ride. Not wanting to disrupt my journey with intimidating waves, I use my fingertips to determine the wind’s direction and steer east.

Ever since I learnt to read, books have kept me company. I read everything, from Asterix comics to how to construct a sky rocket using soda. My love for learning is unconditional. Nonetheless, mathematics is what satisfies my curiosity. Growing older, I participated in mathematics competitions and soon began studying coding languages: Python, HTML, C++ and took part in Hackathlons and programming camps.

The field of automated technology...

Autumn is the time for leaves to fall and for me to go hunting-mushroom hunting. Raincoat on me, a basket in hand and I’m ready for my expedition in Mount. Pelion. Nature’s paintbrush has thrown bold strokes of color that coat the landscape. I’m surrounded by lush forests transformed into a bright kaleidoscope of reds, yellows and gold.Breathtaking vistas await me as I witness nature preparing for a long winter’s sleep. Engaged with a plethora...

Based upon your exploration of Rice University, what elements of the Rice experience appeal to you?
I’d fallen in love: I had found my match. My inbox notified me of mail from Rice. Phrases like “happiest students”,” best quality of life”, “diverse, close-knit community”, flashed before me. Many things impressed me: the top-notch engineering programs, the clubs, the residential college system. What piqued my interest, though, was the Rice Quantum Initiative at the Small-Curley Institute, enabling research in the innovative field of quantum technology, and the internship opportunities at NASA. I envisioned myself bathing under...
