In a few words, explain what the program means to you:

The CSTEP & Project Excel programs are bundles of hope, joy and a never-ending blessing to me. All the faculty members in both programs have played an instrumental role in my life in one shape or the other. These programs have provided me with a vast array of opportunities I never deemed possible in my college career; I've had the grand pleasure of interning at various prestigious places related to my field of interest, utilized the resources available for my academic enrichment on campus and built strong relationships with other students in the programs that I hope will continue to blossom after graduation. Being a part of these programs has made me feel home away from home. It feels great to be self-assured that there are people I can reach out to during arduous times and moments of uncertainty for the future. Both these programs have given me the confidence, motivation and conviction that possibilities are endless and one's dreams are attainable.
