It gives me immense pleasure to endorse this letter ofrecommendation in favor of the truly outstanding Vaibhav Anand.
He had been inthis school since its inception. In my decade counseling students, it is veryrare to encounter an individual with as much self-awareness and compassion asVaibhav. His resilience, spirit, and optimism are chiefly striking given theunusual heart-rending circumstances he has overcome in his life. Bearing inmind the profundity of his experiences and his sophisticated perception oflife, Vaibhav possesses an extraordinary maturity beyond his eighteen years.Vaibhav has endured significant tragedies in his life.
At avery young age (eleven years old) he lost his mother due to meningitis but stillhe performed exceptionally well in his studies in subsequent classes andexhibited a profound interest in computers and technology; he would developvirtual machines, code programs in C++, invent scientific operational modelsand take pleasure in solving mathematics. As a Science stream student, he is meticulous whenperforming experiments and works patiently to complete experimentssuccessfully. Vaibhav is a self-directed, dedicated, student of highintelligence who can grasp difficult concepts, think independently and handlethe rigor of a competitive environment. He exhibits the qualities of a leader.He showed us that achieving good grades was not that hard task for him and hehas been awarded the Scholar badges for his academic excellence constantlysince the sixth-grade. In addition, he has also been an active competitor invarious Science and Mathematics Olympiads since sixth-grade.
He had alwaysrepresented our school in multiple Scientific exhibitions with his innovativeresearch experiments. He was the topper in the grade 11 in the subjectMathematics. However, during high school leaving / final exams(twelfth-grade), Vaibhav’s father had committed suicide, which had affectedVaibhav’s final twelfth-grade exams significantly. I strongly believe that thegrades earned by him in his final twelfth-grade exams do not evince his truepotential.
His twelfth-grade middle term grades reflect a better perception ofhis actual and true intellectual capabilities. Throughout these unstable and uncertain times, Vaibhav diligentlydevoted himself to his education while balancing to manage his distressed homesituation, which essentially required Vaibhav to take a gap year (aftergraduating from high school in May 2017) to look after his younger brother. He hasshouldered the responsibility for his younger brother along with managing otheressential household responsibilities simultaneously. After keeping all that in mind, I believe Vaibhav is anindustrious young man with great fortitude to withstand such life challengingsituations. Based on the incredible resilience and infectious enthusiasmVaibhav has shown throughout the setbacks in his life, I have no doubt that hewill not only continue to deal with any obstacle that comes in his path butalso will thrive with great strength, grace, and an optimistic outlook. He willdefinitely be a valuable addition to your program.
