I have always admired the Missile Man of India, Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam. I am intrigued by his thoughts that motivate me in life. Adventurer and fearless are the words that describe me the best. Talking about my interests, I am a big-time anime fan and watch anime all the time. I am a person who enjoys experiences filled with thrill. I go hiking every weekend that keeps me sane and I enjoy spending my evenings at a boxing gym.
To begin with my journey, I am from Udupi in Karnataka. I was an average kid who had dreams of being a fighter pilot. My parents were always supportive of my dreams. Growing up I was fascinated with technological advancements and the magical world of coding which inspired me to become a software engineer. I followed my curiosity that later brought me to the USA. My journey from Karnataka to the USA was tough and didn’t come easy. It has taught me the importance of hard work and patience.
I have never been afraid of hardships or challenges. I guess I always knew that all of my hard work would be fruitful and would definitely result in something good. Having said that, I believe we all face hardships and failures in life but what is most important is to rise from your failures and work again with even more intensity. I will forever be grateful to my parents for inculcating honesty and hard work in my behavior, my friends for being the motivational pillars, and Consultadd for giving me the opportunity when I was desperately in need of one. Remember what comes served in a golden platter can either be gold or brass, but pure gold can only be achieved by giving in your hard work.
Atish’s story is certainly the one we can relate to, his never-giving-up attitude and dedication towards his work are what made him achieve the heights that he deserved in his career. He is currently working as an ETL developer in Aflac Global Investments and is on the plan of course to achieve all his goals someday. People like Atish are surely an inspiration for any young student from a small town, dreaming about working in a foreign country someday.
