“Workaholic, Creative, Crazy!”
On today’s episode of The Brand Called You, we have with us an accomplished entrepreneur and student mentor, Mr. Arjun Seth. He comes from a business background but found his calling in mentoring youngsters. He has mentored hundreds of high school and college students. After finishing his education, Mr. Seth worked with startups and media houses. While traveling, he saw his mentors doing one-on-one student counseling and he realized that this was his way of not only having in depth conversations with the kids but also giving back to the education system. Mr. Seth also runs Trans- disciplinary programs under the umbrella of urbanism, social entrepreneurship and ecological stewardship. He believes that it is important for students to be aware of local issues and inter-city problems and local knowledge. Mr. Garg put forth very good questions regarding the increasing choices of foreign education among Indian students. They also discussed the importance of accepting failures and how the need for higher grades affects students. This conversation is not only very student friendly but also extremely motivating!
