My profile

I am Jaidev Balaji, 13 from Global Indian International School (Singapore). I have won the prestigious Commonwealth essays – silver, consecutively for 2 years. I was able to positively contribute by reducing zero hunger through implementing ideas with the unequivocal support of my school, hunger warriors team, and my grand-parents. I got a scholarship to represent under 16 for football team Singapore, through Real Madrid in Spain which I balanced with a scholarship from my school as an all-rounder with academics. I learned the importance of discipline, empathy, team spirit, and gratitude which helped me emerge as a truly global citizen. I have bagged International gold in various disciplines -Olympiads – GK, Science, Genius, English, IT.
I come from a humble background where hard work and integrity are nurtured with compassion for the less privileged and grandparents and parents instilled this in my upbringing and never get carried away with success or failures. I think this has kept me grounded and inspired me to work relentlessly with a humane touch.
