PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Studying abroad equips one with unique skills and networks required to enhance both personal and professional lives. Not only does it allow you to explore a different culture, but also helps you develop different perspectives.
The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (also known as the Global UGRAD Program) awards students with outstanding academic and leadership experiences an opportunity to spend a fully-funded semester in the US to immerse themselves in the culture and community. The CEO of Wander Woman, Suzana Kamal, shared her experience of participating in the program and walked us through the application process!

HERE'S SOMETHING INTERESTING


(Part 2/4)

Cricket is known as the gentleman's game, and one of its finest gentlemen is Rahul Dravid. Being a true ambassador of the game, the former Indian batsman has proved time and time again that discipline is the key to success. 


Making his way through to international cricket in 1996, Dravid has led India in both Tests and ODIs. His 12h knock of 270 in a test against Pakistan has earned him the nickname, "The Wall." Not only did he grace the blue jersey, but he is also one of the most educated players in the game.


He went to school at St. Joseph’s Boy’s High School in Bangalore and then graduated in Commerce from St. Joseph’s College of Commerce. While pursuing his MBA at SJIM, he got his call to join the Men in Blue. He went on to be the head coach of the U-19 team. During his tenure, he has often emphasized on skills beyond cricket for upcoming cricketers. He has proven that through hard work and determination, one can find a balance between education and sports.


This is part 2 of a 4-part series with Stories with Saif, where we collaborated to tell the stories of 4 sportsmen who’ve demonstrated exemplary dedication to education. Next week, we will share the story of another special athlete.
