My Story


I always felt I wasn’t being challenged anywhere in life. I was able to breeze through school and didn’t learn much, I just thought I was smart. But when I entered TKS, I was exposed to a whole other world which challenged the status quo and challenged me to become a better individual and set a greater vision for my future. I have learned and grown more, both personally and with my skill set, in a year of being in TKS than I have ever grown anywhere else in my life! Through TKS I have built numerous Artificial Intelligent models with applications in cancer detection and security! I have also given keynote speeches about my projects, at conferences globally in places like London and Las Vegas!

How has TKS impacted me?


TKS has shifted the entire lens in which I perceive and understand the world by. It has lit the fire in me to strive to solve some of the world’s biggest problems and given me the confidence and important skill set to do so. From learning how to give world class presentations, to being trained to identify billion dollar opportunities in complex industries...I have learned invaluable skills that will only lead me to do exceptional things in life.

How is TKS different from other programs?


TKS helps you build the skills that the most successful people in the world posses. It goes way beyond just an extracurricular program you go to sometimes. TKS becomes a place where you meet your best friends, solve global problems together, and grow exponentially as a person. Success in TKS is looking back and seeing how much you’ve grown and accomplished in a short amount of time, and I can personally say it’s an amazing feeling.

Advice I would have given to myself before I joined TKS:


Nothing that is actually worth something in life, ever comes easy. The process might be difficult at first, but trust it will mold you into the best possible version of yourself possible.
Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people."
Eleanor Roosevelt
