Welcome, Minnu!

Minnu!Hello!  I am Minnu and I am the University Counselor for the IKC.  I am from Kerala and spent most of my life in Delhi and Jamshedpur .  When I was 17, I wanted to study Economics and Psychology together while I pursued my love for art, travelling and culture.  My parents always told me to study what I wanted but to make sure I excel in it.  I was also told, “Such an education is not possible. So, settle.”  Before I knew it, I started preparing for my entrance exams to pursue a degree in Economics, Psychology, or Law; I would have to choose one over the others. I was scared for my future. I was afraid that I won’t be able to excel because it was not exactly what I wanted to do.
This is when I miraculously met an admission officer from a private liberal arts institution in the US. She asked me what I wanted to do and I told her my dream. To my surprise, she told me it was nothing but possible to turn my dreams into reality. Several intense discussions, SATs, application processes  and tears after, I was on the plane all set to go to the US to study Economics,  Psychology and Art at DePauw University. Now, I can proudly say that it was the best decision my parents and I ever made. The experience was more than anything my 17 year old brain could have dreamed of!
During my time in the university, I had the opportunity to study with the most amazing students from different streams of study and different cultures. I had professors who counseled me outside the classroom over a cup of coffee or a delicious meal. I also had the opportunity to learn from and be mentored by some of the greatest personalities in the corporate world. I have worked and established close relationships with people from more than 50 countries.  I got to travel to Haiti, Italy, Bulgaria, Turkey and Canada and learn about their culture and run into amazing people. Because of my education, I looked at the world with a 360 degree perspective. My academic experience in and outside the classroom, helped me start a clinic in Haiti. I also got the opportunity to start my career in a Fortune 500 company as soon as I graduated.
Studying abroad was the most wonderful thing that happened to me.  I want to help other students like me to pursue their dreams and excel in what they do! Therefore, I am back in India and I chose to be a part of the IKC team so that I can counsel students to gain an all-round international education that will make them competitive in the corporate world!
