My Inspiration: Fellow Classmate At SDA Bocconi Asia Center

Shruthi Sharma, why did I first talk to her?

Ah, yes! I congratulated her for being selected as a Chief Placecom Officer, that’s how my journey with Shruthi Sharma started at SDA Bocconi Asia Center.

What made her stand unique amongst the others?

The Responsibility she takes in every task she commits.

Over these 13 months that I worked with Shruthi I came to know a lot of things about her, I’ll try to put some traits of Shruthi which I think are worth a mention –

She never worked for the sake of working, for her it’s always about learning. She puts her heart and soul into whatever she does and shows the utmost commitment towards any responsibility taken. No expectation for the immediate results is her motto and this is what drives her to every success she had.

Once I asked her about her leadership skills, she told me how her parents played an important role in her path towards success, their constant push and support to participate in various competitions and being a part of the clubs ever since her schooling is by how she started cultivating her leadership skills.

Till date she has been working with various teams and clubs, to actually say she has been an enthusiastic participator in every event or competition.

Her enthusiasm to take forward any difficulty and her confidence to get through any challenge she accepts is what I see in her as another unique quality.

Time management is important, and she is someone who sleeps at 10:00 P.M. and wakes up at 5:00 A.M., and when asked about how she manages, she laughed and said that’s something which is very easy for her, because of her experience with hectic ICSE curriculum and additional after-school classes that she took.

The best quality she likes to mention about herself is competing, she competes with herself, ‘I try to do things better than the last every time’.

When asked Shruthi, you must have left something for others to cope up with, she answered I don’t understand many basic things, for example, cooking, household works and similar which I can’t fit into my plate how much ever I try!

I always felt motivated to be around her or work with her, she pulls in good vibes which is very much necessary in a Team.


Which ABGP company will you like to join and why?
I, as a person am always looking for a challenging environment to work and strive to do my best in solving these challenges to support in building a better world around me. This quality closely coincides with the corporate cell activities of Aditya Birla Management Corporation Private Limited (ABMCPL).  Corporate Strategy and Business Development is the place I am looking forward to work in. After experiencing the management consulting space closely for the last 1 year, I was able to develop competencies on how to make use of available resources effectively to explore growth opportunities.
