Q. How did you find out about SUNY Korea?
I met SUNY Korea’s Ambassadors when they were visiting India, and they introduced me to SUNY Korea. I was lucky enough to find really amazing professors in the CS department. I met an extremely talented group of professors who were even more passionate about research than me. I learned from them, I learned with them, and I credit them for my success now.
Q. What do you do now?
I work as a data analyst at a startup company called ‘Who’s Good.’ We provide ESG based corporate risk analysis using AI (Artificial Intelligence). Our goal is to support sustainable business practices to improve our world. My role is to develop the algorithms and AI tools to achieve this goal.

SUNY Korea provided me an ideal balance between mentorship and freedom. Mentors I met at SUNY Korea enabled me to find my passion in life and led me to identify my true self both personally and professionally.

My only suggestion would be that you should dare to believe in your dream. You may fail, it may seem hard at times, but someday it will all come together. So, you shouldn’t be afraid.
