I am an International student from India studying at Iowa State University, Ames, IA. For me, it has been close to two years since I came back from India. The United States has become a second home to me. I still remember my first day here when I was scared of getting used to the new culture. I work at Iowa State University Foundation as a student employee and also I am interning as a Management and Marketing Associate at a corporation in Des Moines, Iowa. My father is proud that I am studying at such a good university and moreover in a country like The United States that will help me in paving a successful path for my future endeavors. I like building websites and studying different cultures and this has been a very opportunity for me to study and build my career here.
I graduated from Terry High School in May of 2016, and currently attend Dillard University where I am majoring in English. I actively participate in Student Government, serving as 2017-2018 Sophomore Class Vice President, and will be an Assistant Director for the Presidential Ambassador program. I am also active in the Honors program, Pre-law program, and English club. My long-term goals are to become a practicing family attorney and open a center to teach youth about the law and how it applies to their everyday life.
I'm a biomedical engineer having dabbled in cardiovascular dynamics research, water filtration initiatives and virus vector research apart from teaching high school and college students. I find I love to teach students and see them succeed and walking them through that process has been one of my most meaningful experiences so far.
I am a student of 2nd Year in Electronics and Communication Engineering at the Delhi Technological University (DTU), New Delhi, India. As a student of Electronics, I have a passion for newly developed technologies. At college, I am involved in various community service related and also a part of the Robotics team as the Embedded Systems and Microprocessor Engineer. Recently, I was a part of a project called Green Revolution in association with the United Nations and Government of India. Green Revolution was about using knowledge and Technology to improve the lives of people.
My name is Marko Zlatic and I am going to be a second-year student attending the University of British Columbia. I choose to come to Canada to study due to my passion for the outdoors and to expose myself to something different. I'm currently pursuing a degree in Natural Resource and Conservation Science; it's a mouthful! I choose such a unique degree due to my being able to learn the natural, political, and social sciences that are associated with living in a more sustainable world. To all those who are about to start or are currently in University, a great piece of advice I heard was to only go forward, something that really pushes me to do my absolute best. Life is arduous at times, but, its the way you bounce back and how much stronger you've been because of it. The best thing to do is to ensure that every day will grant you an incentive to be one step closer to your goal; the reason for my drive. All and all, I'm an extremely ambitious individual with a passion to implement more sustainable societies. I have the drive to be my absolute best every single day and to ensure I monopolize everything opportunity I'm granted to pursue.
Politics is what keeps my world in orbit. I have always felt I wanted to help people, to make a positive impact in the social context I lived in. I strongly believe that the most precious factor in politics is the one of human relations. When you start getting involved in your community, along with personal motivation, there is at least another element that drives you: someone who comes into your life and sees something in you that you had never seen before. My passion for politics brought me 1000 km far from home, at the Catholic University of the Holy Heart in Milan, where next year I am going to graduate in Political Science and International Relations. My experience here in college really changed my life. When I moved here, I did not like the town: I missed the streets, the people, the possibility to go looking at the sea whenever I wished. But then politics saved me again: I took part in the campaign of my party for the administrative elections. That was not my first electoral campaign. It was the third, but each of them is always so different from the previous one. I could not be more proud of the university I study in. In UCSC the true aim of every activity, from classes to seminars, is the full development of people and the education of a new leadership class for the society. UCSC is not just a college. It is a place when you are given all the chances to discover day by day who you really want to be.
