Big Life Wins:

I coped with and powered through clinical depression from early 2019. I’m a mental health champ at community camps. Under my leadership at Interact, we raised funds for water purification devices at homes for the specially abled, and to send local children abroad for exchange programs. I was part of the first such program in Australia.

Post MBA Goal:

My aim is to work with, and eventually, lead investment managers focused on emerging markets. AUMs of the largest domestic institutions in India are very small vis-a-vis the western world. I also plan to work towards increasing access to education and opportunities for marginalized groups in India, especially underprivileged women.

    For someone so young and directed (because you are still two years away from applying), this is a super impressive profile. You have accomplished a great deal at the age of 22, particularly given your bout with clinical depression.

    2) At Interact, try to put flesh, blood and data into your accomplishments. To help a school measure you impact, you will want to tell stories of the people you have helped and provide a sense of the magnitude of your …
