He has taken on every challenge with ambition and has shown a desire to work hard from the start. He has only been here a short time and he has already demonstrated that he is highly deserving of this award.” “Although he only joined the Help Desk team in December, Akshat’s enthusiasm, willingness to learn and filling in the toughest finals shifts earned him this month’s nomination. He was very excited to get started right away and was eager to sign up for shifts during finals and extended study hours. Akshat stepped in with confidence for shifts when no one else was available and gladly accepted the challenge.”
