Viraj is the TEDxBrookings Open Mic winner from Mumbai, India, a city of 12 million people. Mumbai is hot, humid and spicy. Immediately after his gap year, I decided to join South Dakota State University.
He is pursuing 1 major, 3 minors and 1 certificate, all of which pertain to communication studies in one form or another. He likes talking to anyone or anything that talks.
When people ask him what I want to do in my life, he says he wants to accomplish all the items on his bucket list, which includes traveling the seven continents, helping someone successfully run for political office and either direct or edit movies.
He found my existential origins, 8000 miles away in the relatively small town of Brookings, South Dakota and will share that story on the TEDx stage.
