A car enthusiast since he was young, his one and only birthday request for many years, used to be hot wheels! So, when asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, his answer was always a racer. However, as Aditya grew up, those initial aspirations changed through various exposures that influenced him. Nevertheless, one thing became clear; that there are no shortcuts in life and he has to be his own man. Being keen on a balanced life often led to juggling between academics and his love for sports, especially football. Although only through football did he learn important life lessons of teamwork and perseverance. Additionally, having worked as a client servicing executive in Wunderman Thompson, a job that isn’t too different to one of a firefighter, dowsing work fires all day. He learnt to be stern as well as empathetic, strict but flexible and clear as well as understanding. Certain qualities that motivate him to be his best version every day. Aditya is an avid lover of music and is often found constantly recommending new songs to his friends. Other than music, he has an inclination towards sports, travel, fashion and fitness. A person full of life and curiosity, he hopes to soak in as much as possible from his talented peers. Having done his schooling, college as well as his work experience from his hometown, Kolkata, Aditya is still left with this burning desire for fulfillment and self-realisation. A desire which he hopes to satisfy through the Young India Fellowship.
