Bangladesh’s homestead minister, Dipu Moni discussed the dire situation of Rohiyanga and taught Anish the importance of diplomacy and international politics. Finally from Frances, Anish learned how to apply leadership strategies in the real world. This exposure led to Anish’s obsession with watching countless documentaries and reading countless articles and books about economics, global affairs, and business.

Anish has won multiple awards including becoming the first person from his school to qualify for the National Speech and Debate Competition, outstanding delegate in UCLA, best delegate for Los Angeles MUN, and 2x team MVP mock trial.

Tying in his three passions of public policy, economics, and entrepreneurship, he aims to create a legacy that is shared and supported by his generation.
