Aakaash M.

National University of Singapore - BE Mechanical Engineering

Short Bio:

Aakaash interest towards learning the French language has always made him stand tall among his peers. He was able to easily adapt to the IB way of teaching and learning, as he had to associate learning the language by understanding the culture, with ease he made use of his skills to learn the French language. He used to create opportunities to interact in French and make use of his leisure time listening to French songs or watching French movies. He used to further identify creative means to learn a language, through role plays and games. During classroom sessions, especially during grammar classes, he used to come out with probing questions that furnished some new information, and certainly carried on very able and ingenious debates.
He was also engaged in many other co- curricular activities such as public speaking, innovative presentations, and has been an effective Model United Nations Participant. I had escorted him a couple of model united nations respectively and have seen him participate with enthusiasm. He also played a major role in organizing a MUN in the school; the responsibility he shouldered along with the team was commendable. He has always been a good friend who encourages, motivates and enhances companionship. He has always maintained a cordial working relationship with the teachers. He has prominently been seen a risk- taker who takes up new challenges without any hesitation or fear which has enabled him to accomplish his work successfully. The most interesting factor that I had found in Aakaash was his passion towards Learning. He had a gifted talent to achieve his goals with ease; he does push himself to go the distance and stays focused in his interest to pursue his career. He was the part of South Indian Model United Nations – 2017, 2018 and had been committed and sincere team player.
