“On a quest to find a Global institution rooted in interdisciplinary studies, I found JGU” Shares Sumalatha KC, Student, JSIA

Meet Sumalatha K.C, Student, M.A. Diplomacy, Law, and Business, Batch of 2022, Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA).

Sumalatha has previously worked as a business analyst. She has always been interested in international affairs and sustainability and that’s what drew her to pursue her Master’s degree programme at India’s No.1 Private University – JGU.

Her quest for a ‘Global University’ began when she found out about JGU through her peers. Upon this, she began her research and resonated with JGU’s world reknown faculty, international collaborations, research institutes and Institution of Imminence status. Sumalatha’s journey at #JGU began in the COVID19 pandemic and although most of her classes went ‘online’, she still enjoyed every bit of it. Her core support during the degree has been the #JSIA faculty members who not only helped her with classes but also motivated her to participate in extracurricular activities to ensure her holistic development.

Writing and Research are the key skills where Sumalatha finds her calling the most and this is something that she nurtured at #JGU. “My mentors including Prof. (Dr.) Pankaj Jha and Prof. (Dr.) Ricki Levi have been a huge support in my efforts. They have always motivated me to give my best and inspired me to win the National Level Field Marshal Manekshaw essay competition and National conference on Sustainability Research paper, respectively,” shares Sumalatha.

Holding a deep interest in learning, the multi-disciplinarity fostered at JGU has aided in Sumalatha’s goals. She believes that inquisitiveness is what drives her to break out of boundaries and explore new opportunities. A key factor in developing her interest in sustainability was her love for nature, which is also a source of inspiration for her.

Talking about her favourite JGU moments Sumalatha concludes “Being selected for the Best Student JSIA ambassador award, meeting like-minded people, and the friendly teaching environment are some of my most cherished memories here at JGU”.

She is currently associated with the Ministry of Housing- PMAY-U Program, under the Government of Tamil Nadu.

We wish Sumalatha the best for her journey ahead!
