Mr. Captain Mishra
I have been working on ships as an officer since 2012 and became Captain at the age of 30 which is remarkably young for the rank. I have a very good academic record and have been involved in football and table tennis at a national level. I would like to work in sustainability consulting, especially in the transport and logistics sectors.
Undergrad School: IGNOU
Undergrad Major: Nautical Science
Age: 30, Ethnicity: Asian or Indian
Extracurriculars: Table tennis national level player, school football team captain and still playing, worked with an NGO during winter months to provide clothing and essentials to people.
Length of Employment: 9 yrs, 1 mos
Big Life Wins:
Getting promoted to Captain at the age of 30 (Less than 0.5% manage to do so) was a major accomplishment, but even greater was executing my first voyage in command. Transiting pirate-infested waters, the Suez canal, Bosphorus strait, to get to the Black sea and then back to Vietnam to discharge 20 million $ worth of cargo without any loss or delays.
Post MBA Goal:
The transportation and logistics sector is poised for massive changes towards decarbonization and sustainability between now and 2050. I wish to transition into a consulting role in either the maritime or sustainability sector and contribute towards shaping the future of transport.
Target School: Harvard
