Balaprasanth B.G.

University of Toronto - Studies in Social Science (Economics)

Short Bio:

Balaprasanth is one of the self-motivated, resourceful and smart-working student since the time he had joined 6th grade. More recently, since the time he has joined the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, I observed a huge growth in his character fuelled with his aspirations to pursue his further studies in Economics. Apart from this, Balaprasanth constantly takes the effort to learn and correct his previous mistakes in academics, and attempts to create a better version of himself. He also enjoys being with his friends in class while making videos on school events and social causes, showing his team spirit. He always participates actively in his classes and does not hesitate to bring out his doubts forward. Moreover, he is motivated by challenging problems and theories, and tries to experiment with them at any given opportunity.
