In the last 17 years of my career as a Motivational Speaker and Career Counselor, one repeated ‘help request’ that I have tried to process regularly is that of – How to write a good SOP. It is highly satisfying a feeling to have contributed my bit to the dreams of hundreds of brilliant, bright, career focused students. By writing this Blog- the intent is to reach out to more. Here is all that I learnt about SOP writing while seeing the success / rejection of many a SOP at some of the most renowned institutes of the world.
In this open letter to my teachers, I am trying to ask a few questions I couldn’t ask as a young student. The idea is to try and move everyone on to a better path.

In the last twelve years of my working as a Motivational Speaker, if there is one fiery need that I have identified across School / College campuses in Asian countries- it is that of improving English, both spoken and written. As the world becomes more global, this need becomes more pronounced.
I wish this need were limited only to the students/ youth only. Unfortunately it is not. People in the corporate sector; at the end of my corporate training will silently / secretly want to get answered the same question. 🙂
