My team and I work to mentor high school and college students as they ask fundamentally important questions about their education, career paths and the impact they wish to leave on society. Our goal is to help them discover answers where they will feel happy, challenged and successful. 


As someone who cares deeply about education and career guidance, I have been actively mentoring both individual students and educational institutions since 2010. Students seek me for my resourceful insights into college admissions and career planning. High schools seek me to structure their counseling departments and college admission officers seek my insights into the education landscape in India. In 2014, my family established The Next Genius Foundation, a charitable trust that offers full undergraduate scholarships at select US colleges to bright Grade 12 students from India. In 2017, this fund will award college scholarships worth $ 6 million.
Every year, I attend several educational conferences around the world and visit college campuses abroad to keep up to date with the latest trends. I was the first counselor from India to attend the prestigious
Harvard Summer Institute on College Admissions. I am also a proud alumnus of UCLA and the University of Cambridge.
