Having spent all my 14 years of schooling in Our Own English High School, Sharjah, Boys’ Branch, I can confidently say that it has taught me how to be a respectful, responsible, confident and compassionate individual.

I was fortunate enough to have some really wonderful teachers, who played an integral part in moulding me into the person I am today. Be it Academics or Extra-curricular activities, they made sure I never backed out from any opportunity, right from the beginning. It is for this reason that I always try and pay a visit to school every time I make a trip to the UAE, just so that I can meet some of my teachers who’re still around.

Having said that, the three things on the top of my head that I‘ll always be grateful to my school for:

  • Helping me understand and grow upon my passion for singing. Be it the Annual School Concerts, or the different Intra and Inter-school competitions, they were some truly memorable times.
  • Giving me the chance to serve as the President of the Student Council in the Academic Year 2013-14. This personally helped me grow a lot as a person and a leader. I got the opportunity to work with some really amazing people and it definitely taught me how to work well as a team.
  • Amidst all this, making sure I don’t lose track of my Academics, which is what eventually helped me decide the career path I wanted to take.

I finished my MBBS from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University, India, in the year 2020. I’m currently working under the same hospital, while I prepare for my Entrance Examination for my Post-Graduate Specialty Training.

Lastly, I wish to thank OOB for giving me some really great friends. I’ve had some amazing memories both in and out of school thanks to them, which I’ll forever cherish.
