Roli is from Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, India. Prior to coming to UB, she majored in dentistry and was practicing in Novo Health Care, Dubai for more than four years. Roli has always had a deep-seated urge to help the needy. It was this sense of purpose that led her to become a dentist.
“I live for those moments which one can only feel after helping the disadvantaged," she says. "In the future, I intend to set up my own dental insurance company to make an impact on society in India, where dental insurance is still an unfamiliar concept."
"Programs like Blackstone Launchpad, the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and others help budding entrepreneurs share their ideas and learn how to execute it. Additionally, LeaderCORE™, Corporate Champions, Global Perspectives, and the various student clubs made my decision to come to UB an easy one. I am honored be chosen as a recipient for the Elizabeth M. and Joseph P. Ivers Management Scholarship and a beneficiary of the Irene and Jeff Jacobson Family Fund. Lastly, never give up on your dreams. Believe you can and you are half way there!”
