Grounded in his belief in the power of community engagement and the importance of giving back, Naman eagerly volunteers his time and resources to various causes, from roadside cleanup initiatives to charitable donations.

As he embarks on his journey as an ambassador for ASU’s electrical engineering program, Naman envisions himself as a catalyst for positive change and innovation. With a keen focus on fostering collaboration, driving progress and serving as a voice for his peers, he is poised to inspire and lead by example, harnessing his diverse experiences and unwavering dedication to shape the future of the program and make a meaningful impact on the community.

Naman’s advice to students:

“Never let negativity enter your mind! Many would say that a course is hard. Just remember that a course is hard or easy only based on your mentality. If you mentally consider that a course is brutal, it will be brutal, but if you have the mindset that ‘This course is challenging, but I will be able to crack it,’ you will, as our brain is capable of achieving that goal.”
