Akshat Rajan - Alumni (Class of 2015)
"I am Akshat A Rajan, from the Class of 2015, I am presently majoring in International Relations and minoring in Film and Media Studies at Tufts University in Boston.
École Mondiale is now synonymous with who I am today. École always provided room for growth and the belief that nothing is impossible. Right from my fundraising events to organizing blood donation camps to initiating TEDxÉMWS and being the STUCO President, École encouraged me at every little step I took and that encouragement is what keeps me going and helps me reach soaring heights. I was awarded Top Student Volunteer in the country by DHL Pramerica Community Awards for my TEDx Initiatives. I continue to be involved as Curator of TEDxTufts and President of the International Community here at Tufts.
For the Fall 2017 Semester, I have taken time off to take part in a program called Semester At Sea. Semester At Sea is a 106-day program where 600 students from all over the world circumnavigate the globe visiting 11 countries in 4 continents while taking classes on board."

"Joining École in 2007 was the best decision I made in my life. My 7 years at École Mondiale have been truly worth remembering and I miss everything about the school. École Mondiale has changed me into a very different person.
École allows all students to grow in any field they want with its vast range in subject choices, sports, leadership initiatives, and service. In addition, it helps students become better global citizens by providing an amazing all-rounded education. It allows students to expand to their maximum capacity and if need be stretch that maximum to sky high.
At École there was nothing I couldn’t do, from studying to service to starting new sports clubs, everything a student wanted was available. I learned key skills in management after doing the IBDP, and also made strong connections with friends and the amazing faculty here at École.
Everyone at École Mondiale from students to faculty were charming, helpful, good-natured and most importantly a good friend. I am proud to be part of École’s Alumni. I truly miss École and everyone with me during my 7 years."

"My transformational education journey at École:
I participated in the 3-day Alliance for International Education conference held in October’14 as a “well prepared and confident journalist”. My classmate and I headed a Monday activity called “École Press” for a semester in the senior year wherein current issues were discussed and debated and the team headed the Press for EMUN that year. I was also a part of the core team for Relay for Life’14 as ‘Survivorship Head’.
Some activities I was a part of in a nutshell are: International EMUN, Girls relay for sports day (2013), Educational workshop to understand how the press works, ‘listening to Shakespeare’ workshop by a professor for Ashoka University, EMUN as press in 2013.
There were various community service activities where I volunteered - taught less fortunate children Origami for 1 semester and English for 3 semesters in junior and senior years, developed houses in Karjat under Habitat for Humanity,organized a sports day for autistic children from Samarpan, at Muskaan Foundation for 3 months in 2016, developed and customized visual aids for children with multiple disabilities and visual impairment. These have helped me build my foundation for what I am today.
Presently, I am a part of an independent study on campus to understand and appreciate Middle Eastern Art & Aesthetic by organizing events (performances, talks and panel discussions) throughout this semester. I play Rugby for F&M and I was recently selected to join Phi Sigma Pi (
a honors fraternity on campus). This spring, I will be rushing to join a sorority on campus. I am also on the diversity committee of Spoon University while doing my TEFL online."

"It's been almost four years since I graduated from École, but the memories have not faded. I am a senior at Northeastern University and Major of Communications and a Minor of Entrepreneurship. My first co-op (internship) was at the Tata Center of Technology and Design where I served as a communications intern. My second and current co-op is at Marsh & McLennan Companies as a Digital and Graphics intern in the Corporate Communications department. Excited to see what life has in store post-graduation!"

"I started my journey at École Mondiale in 2nd grade and much of who I am today is because of the opportunities given to me and guidance of my teachers at École Mondiale. For example like letting me lead the basketball team, or becoming a sports captain or being a part of the youngest TEDxÉMWS in Asia. Currently, I am junior studying at Stern School of Business pursuing a double concentration in finance and operations management and am recruiting for an analyst position in investment banking."

"Ever since École, attending Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles was one of the best decisions I made. I am now interning at Albert Fashion Library and involved in LA Fashion Week and am looking forward to what comes next. The Merchandising & Marketing Program prepares students for a wide range of careers in the global fields of fashion merchandising, marketing, and brand management. The curriculum emphasizes the development of creative, financial, technological, buying and promotional strategies that affect consumer behavior in the digital era."

"I moved to San Francisco after graduation my early graduation to work for a tech company called QuestionPro, Inc. I started off as an Account Executive, but the Hamilton and École edge helped me ascend through the ranks really fast. Following a great 2016 in San Francisco, my CEO assigned me to a special project in Utah.I moved to Salt Lake City at the start of 2017 to open a new office for our company that focuses solely on outbound sales. I now manage a sales office of 20 people in the Silicon Slopes.
The École community in USA has really made very easy to adjust and grow.I really miss the school days but it has been wonderful staying in touch with all the friends through planned events or surprise visits.Here is a quick picture from a recent event too:
It is actually of me (on the left) and my brother Ritvij Gautam (École Class of 2010). Rit now is the Chief Executive Officer of his own startup called TryMyUI. His company is based in San Francisco, California. He is also doing amazing and missing India! He is excited to come back to Mumbai this December after 3 years of constant work in the USA."
