Meet Shirish Kumar

Shirish Kumar is a 19-year-old Miracle Foundation scholarship recipient from Anbarasi Child Care Institution (CCI). He is in his second year of college, studying Mechanical Engineering.

Like all of our scholarship recipients, Shirish fills out the application every year with information about his school, his engineering program and courses, and future academic and professional goals.

When asked about his college experience, Shirish says, “I love my computer science classes. I also love to spend time with my friends, sharing food and chatting with them. Also, my professors are great! They are caring and help me in many ways.”

Shirish has an older brother, who he is staying with while he completes his studies. Shirish enjoys staying with his older brother and riding the bus to his college classes.

Upon graduation, Shirish plans to become a Mechanical Engineer. He’s excited to become an independent adult and begin his career. We’ll continue to guide him on his journey, even checking in on his progress after he graduates from college.
