I would like to be remembered for my:
being President of NYU SASPI.
My favorite course at NYU:
History or Communication

Being a Stressbuster. I realized that giving fellow students free backrubs takes more motivation than visits to the old age home, teaching or volunteering at the Islamic Center.
After I graduate, I:
will work for a while in New York and then will go back to India to change the media system there.
Why I chose this program at NYU Steinhardt:
Its provides exposure in terms of theory, bringing in business, anthropology, globalization, gender studies etc and also practice, providing access to roundtables, panels and discussions with top professionals. It is broad but not in a way that you get lost. Its multidisciplinary approach lets you explore and define your interests and passion.
A book from class I would never sell back:
Sigmund Freud - The Interpretation of Dreams
My inspiration:
My international upbringing.
My favorite place to study around NYU:
The benches in front of Furman Hall

Work in different media industries around the world and blog about it or make a documentary on it.
Prized possession:
My diaries.
The professor who influenced me the most:
Gabrielle Heller
