“I had tremendous learning experience at UDM, all through my three graduate degree programs, 1992-94 M.E. Electrical Engineering, 1994-96 MBA, and 1996-1997 MA Economics.
I have many cherished memories from the times that I spent with learned professors under their astute guidance. But the most poignant one is that of my time working as a cook at the UDM Jesuit Residence — Lansing-Reilly Hall, during fall 1992. As an international student, this was my very first Job in the United States, earning a full $4.35/hr. I used to start my work at 5 a.m. and cook bread for the Jesuit priests. And had great privilege to serve them all different kinds of breads, as part of their morning breakfast. It was labor of love and gift to be in their service.
To this day, I cherish the values and virtues of humility, simplicity and transparency that I witnessed there.”
