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. I must confess that he has never ceased to impress. His resilience,spirit, and optimism are chiefly striking given the unusual heart-rendingcircumstances he has overcome in his life. Bearing in mind the profundity ofhis experiences and his sophisticated perception of life, Vaibhav possesses anextraordinary 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 science, computers and technology; he woulddevelop virtual machines, code programs in C++, invent scientific operationalmodels and take pleasure in solving mathematics. As a Science stream student, he is meticulous when performingexperiments and works patiently to complete experiments successfully.
Vaibhavis a self-directed, dedicated, student of high intelligence who can graspdifficult concepts, think independently and handle the rigor of a competitiveenvironment. He exhibits the qualities of a leader. He showed us that achievinggood grades was not that hard task for him and he has been awarded the Scholarbadges for his academic excellence constantly since the sixth-grade. Inaddition, he has also been an active competitor in various Science andMathematics Olympiads since sixth-grade. He had always represented our schoolin multiple Scientific exhibitions with his innovative research experiments. Hewas the topper in the eleventh-grade in the subject Mathematics.
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. Hehas shouldered the responsibility for his younger brother along with managingother essential 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. If I can further assist, pleasefeel free to contact me. I hope this information proves to be helpful.
