N/A, Anduril / YouTube / Tesla / UC Berkeley

Nikhil is a senior at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. Upon graduation, he'll be moving to LA to be an engineer & product manager at a startup called Anduril, which was recently cited in Forbes' list of the next billion dollar companies. Before that, he spent the last three summers interning at Tesla as a software developer, for which he received personal distinction from the company's VP of Software Engineering. More importantly, Nikhil prides his passion for education and film-making with his YouTube channel, where he publish weekly videos about social and personal growth philosophies that interest him. To date, he's grown an audience of 32,000 subscribers, and it has been a sobering reminder of his larger responsibility to help others in need of advice or mentorship. He has used this growth to spearhead the sales of his own growth journal and clothing line, which has since generated nearly $20,000 in revenue! He has had the immense privilege of connecting deeply with students who open up about their professional hopes and mental well-being. Such experiences have allowed him to reach a publishing agreement with Manning, where he will be making video courses to teach machine learning to a wider audience, and eventually writing a book about the beauty of computer science. He also plans to collaborate with two fashion houses to bring his growth-driven vision of apparel to life.
