In that sense, the partnership made a lot of sense since both my and the University origins are the same and both of our visions are to become the best at what we do. I found that our values were aligned not only because of our origin but the fact that we want to set a benchmark in our respective fields. The University is very popular in Gujarat and is making a mark in the higher education ecosystem. We came together in order to connect with the youth on a deeper level not only from an academic point of view but to promote building a healthy attitude towards an active lifestyle and growth mindset."
