Nationality: Nepalese

Jacobs gave me eyes to look at the world with a completely different angle. It taught me to judge humanity above nationality, culture or religion. In the span of 5 years, I met people from all over the world and in some way, they became my family away from home. The intercultural competence & inter personal skills that I gained at Jacobs definitely helps me standout in my professional environment every day when I deal with my clients and partners.
