Darshan has developed an avid interest in computer science. Not only he was a commendable student throughout his tenure at our school, but he also wished to share his interests and intellect with like-minded people. A huge scale interaction of this kind occurred when a group of friends and him conducted short awareness presentations for students from grade 1 to DP year 2 regarding internet security on the 30th November, which was observed as the international internet security day. Throughout the course, Darshan was an active participant in debate and Model United Nations conferences. He revealed that such events provided him an opportunity to speak for and against his own views.
