Harsh recently joined our BDPA Philadelphia chapter. When asked to share his thoughts on being a Johnson & Johnson scholar, Harsh wrote,
"I am currently a student at Temple University pursing a degree in Information Science & Technology. I plan to put in all my effort and determination for the four years I will be in college. The market is really competitive in today’s day and age and I am working hard to stand out amongst the crowd.
My passion for technology began when I was a little kid playing computer games. Here I am today pursing my dream of working with technology as a career. I want to obtain this degree not only for the job and money I will make but for my parents who currently work labor jobs. My parents moved to America for me and my brother to be successful and I owe my whole life to them. I want to make them proud and make sure they do not have to work labor jobs like they do right now. Furthermore, I want to give back to the society and take technology to places where people have not seen it.
Currently I volunteer at many different places and it varies, no set contract. Any time I get I try to give back to the community. In the future I want to travel to countries who are not fortunate enough to use technology. However, all this is a dream but dreams come true when you are consistently taking little steps and progressing in life. I work as a tech support in our university library but one day I want to work for the company that creates the technology."BDPA is blessed to have such a young and talented technology student on board as both a member and as winner of the Johnson & Johnson Scholarship. We look forward to supporting Harsh's career as he seeks to advance in the technology industry!
