#GraduateStories – The Dancer who Loves Solving Complex Problems
Kashvi Jajodia is a member of the graduating batch of 2022, who majored in Economics
I am someone who is extremely passionate about breaking down complex problems and solving them using analytical frameworks. My Economics and Finance degree at Ashoka University has equipped me with the necessary tools to solve wide ranging macro and microeconomic problems across different industries. Thus, I will be pursuing a career in Management consulting which feeds well with my interests.
Apart from academics, I am a professionally trained Kathak dancer. I headed the dance society – Abhinaya of 35+ members at Ashoka University. During my tenure, Abhinaya carried forward more than 15 online productions including Masterclasses with Maestros like Srimati Ramavaidyanathan and three mega in person events in a span of 1.5 months since the college reopened.
Along with my degree at Ashoka University, I have also been pursuing a masters in arts degree in Indian classical dance which has enabled me to represent the country both at National & International level for dance.
Having been someone who’s always had a lot on my plate, be it Ashoka University’s challenging economics curriculum, my passion for problem solving or my active involvement in student life services, I believe I have learnt the art of maintaining a work life balance.
Overall my journey at Ashoka University has been enriching and has helped me to think analytically and critically, understand people better, and manage my time effectively.
