What was your favourite memory in UCC?

One of the best memories which I cherished a lot was UCC Diwali.

How did your time at UCC help you to get to where you are now?

The one year of Masters not only helped me master my course but also helped me to grow as an individual. I got a chance to join different clubs, meet different people and gain experiences that I actually still relish.

What is your advice to current UCC students? What person/people at UCC had the most positive influence on you?

My advice to current students is use and manage your time well. Make time to meet new people and practice your hobbies same as you would do for your assignments.

I made friends in UCC through events and we had common interests in terms of education or hobbies and it made my stay in Cork more pleasant.

I enjoyed dancing very much from childhood, and I got chance to be on stage for an event by UCC indian society, and im still continuing to pursue my passion for dance being part of dance team called Aatma in cork. 

So for sure , your interactions and choices in college will help you build a life you will want to live and enjoy further. So choose wisely 🙂

Were you involved in any Clubs or Societies?

I was an event officer of the UCC indian society, part of the Korean society, and few others.

What are you currently working on?

 I currently work as a software engineer with IBM.
