Short-Term Goals

My short-term goal would be to strive for academic excellence. Maintaining my grades as well as taking part in sports is one of the goals that I hope to maintain. Another short-term goal would be to give back to the community that I grew up in as well as the community that I am currently in. I want to be able to take part in the Idea Shop so I can give up to IIT and it’s community. I will be taking part in community service to give back to this city as well. My aim is to accumulate as much experience and knowledge as possible. Whether it be through internships or seminars, I want to cultivate as much knowledge to prepare me for life after college. I currently aspire to work towards the water filter that I have been developing on with my team. We hope to be able to develop it so that that is both effective and cost-efficient. Another one of my goals for the next year or so is to launch a charity for flood victims in my home country. The surrounding area near the rivers faces heavy flooding every year and I hope to provide the people with rations and clothing in these dire circumstances.

Long-Term Goals

My long-term and life goal are to innovate in the field of technology to the level that I can compete with my idols like Elon Musk. This aspiration is a wild one but creativity can go a long way and I feel I have what it takes to go the distance. I would like to pursue my master's and doctorate once I am done with my undergraduate and hope to be able to contribute to research specifically towards Robotics and Artificial intelligence. Cryptocurrency is another field that I want to be able to dive into. The idea of a universal currency with no central bank is very intriguing to me and helps reduce the boundaries between countries. However, there can be a multitude of safety issues such as taxation and server problems. I would like to develop strong AI software that would be able to counter these problems and provide a seamless experience for the user. Aside from this, I aspire to start my own company in the future. As I stated above, my goal is to compete with the best in the industry and invent an AI program that will revolutionize the tech industry.
