‘Success is a
journey, not the destination’. This is one of my favorite precepts and at this
point in my life where I have just completed my under graduation, my future
unfolds in front of me like a maze; this maxim has never influenced my life
more than this before. As I stand at the vestibule of completing my
undergraduate study, after carefully weighing the various career options open
to me, I have decided to pursue Masters study in Computer Science.


I had always
wanted to be a knowledge seeker. With this intention in mind, I exhibited great
hard work, intelligence, positivity towards education, which favored in
yielding laurels from my teachers in school and stood among the second place in
the final exams of higher secondary education (School of Secondary Certificate)
with 93.5% of marks. Then I completed my 12th standard (Board of Intermediate
Education) with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as majors with an aggregate
of 91.2%. A natural aptitude for mathematics, a sense of logic, analytical
ability, capacity for diligent work and high academic credentials secured me a
place at SASTRA University, which is one of the most prestigious colleges of
the country. I got selected through an All India Engineering Entrance Examination
conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education of India. Choosing Information
and Communication Technology  as my
undergraduate major was driven by my passion for Computers, my fascination for Computer
Sciences in post graduation. The rigorous curriculum provided me with a strong
and comprehensive background in Data Structures, Computer Architecture,
Operating Systems, Microprocessors, Object Oriented Programming, Database
Management Systems and Software Engineering. Apart from these, I was trained in
other specialized subjects such as Telecommunication, Electronic Circuits,
Theory of Computing, Networks, Data Mining and Data Warehousing. The related
laboratory work developed in me, is an appreciation for the repertoire of
engineering principles and their practical relevance. I take full responsibility for the grades
that I earned early on. I was more into acquiring technical knowledge being an
active contributor to various Open Source Organizations and travel within India
and US as a result I was not able to attend my University classes on a regular
base. I didn’t realize the effort that it would take to be successful in the
Undergrads. I’ve learned from my mistakes and I have consistently improved
resulting in better grades in 7th and 8th semester. My interest towards Big
Data and Cloud Computing helped me achieve an ‘A’ grade in Final Year project.


I have
successfully coordinated in designing a research paper on “Brain
Fingerprinting” and presented the talk in SAMHITA International Conference
in SASTRA University. Being also a security enthusiast, I had worked upon a
mini project on “Emerging Security Threats”. As a part of my Final
year project, I have worked extensively upon Data management on Cloud Computing
for which I was offered as an exchange student with scholarship in Plymouth
University, UK. However, for my MS degree, I remain open to other topics as


Academics, I had an innate passion for organizing group activities right from
my childhood. Being an Open Source Enthusiast and Open Web Evangelist, I started
contributing to Mozilla from my second year of Engineering. I presented several
talks on the Firefox OS and other Mozilla technologies in India and US and
helped building Technical Communities. Being awarded with the contributor of
the month June 2014 and recognizing myself on Mozilla Credits Page was a
memorable achievement. I had been also contributing to several NGOs which
include Redcross, Youth for Seva and an intern at Greenpeace International
Organization as a Research Analyst.      


My interest
and works towards Big Data had helped me bag a job as a Decision Scientist in
Mu Sigma Inc.   But, I feel that undergraduate study alone
does not provide the specialized academic exposure essential to reach higher
professional levels in the present day technology driven workplace. Moreover,
the need for professionals with computer skills is ever growing. With graduate
studies in the United States of America, known for its innovation and setting
global standards of excellence, I will be able to get adequate opportunities to
test the validity and the practicality of my ideas and prove myself much
better. I believe that your esteemed university will nourish this hunger and
make me bloated with knowledge. I would like to do my graduate course at an
established university, complete with all facilities and which has been a
yardstick for excellence like yours. In this regard, I had a very good feedback
from my academic counselors and seniors. So I kindly request you to kindly consider
my application and let me have the honor of being associated with your


In return I
assure the university will find me a keen and passionate student, who would contribute
to the excellent track record of your university. My admission to your
university will propel me towards my career objective which is to become an
innovator in technology. I am confident that with my solid undergraduate work
and willingness to pursue new admissions and research, I can perform to my best
and meet the high standards set by your university. I request you to kindly
consider me for any form of financial assistance, as it would be of great help
to me.
