The College Drop Out Series: #3

This the third segment of the drop out series where I asked a questions to individuals who have dropped out of higher education to pursue their passion full time. The next couple people have already answered last year so it's out of date, but I will be interview more as I obtain further interest. These individuals had the opportunity to remain anonymous so if you don't see a name, you'll know why!

Please follow me on instagram or like my page on facebook for the latest updates! Will be setting up a e-mail subscription update system soon.

Thank you so much for interviewing with! Let's begin.

Please give a brief description of yourself (academic background, work experience, fav hobby, etc).

I make innovative customised hardware and make people engage creatively with it. So far we've worked with hacking conferences and now soon going to work with college events. 

Why did you drop out of college?

I did not belong there. I found opportunity to work with the great people in hacking industry.

What was the the transition procedure like? Did you have family and friends supporting/understanding your decision? If not, how did you deal with it?

Family and relatives were angry, to say the least. Especially relatives criticised a lot for my decision. I kept calm through the hard times. Eventually, when revenues started coming, everyone went silent. Now they understand me somewhat.

Where are you now? What are you currently doing/working on?

I live in New Delhi where I make innovative electronics. And engage people to play with it, be creative and make cool stuff out of it. My vision is to make the learning experience as fun and experiment based rather than rote learning. (I would love to show you some of our works. )

If you could go back in time, what is one thing you would change to better pave way for your future?

Computers fascinated me since childhood. If I'm allowed to go back, I'd get myself a computer sooner and learn all the courses I wanted when I was a kid.

Are you planning on going back to school?

No. The reason is, the entire atmosphere I found there is very very depressing. There is absolutely no reason I should go back there. Bottomline is, it affects largely to what you want to become. I didn't want to become IT employee and work for someone else (no offence to anyone) or I didn't want to go for post graduation like most students in my college did (because of no jobs - they go for PG). I wanted to be an entrepreneur and I found that college is rather pulling me back. Besides, once you start earning, things start to get on track. Your parents are less worried because you can earn on your own.

What are some advice for others who are planning to drop out or not attend a higher education institute?

Things do not get easier when you drop out. Things, in fact, get tenfold harder. Because in real life, you face challenges you've never faced before and unlike college, you aren't going to get answers from the textbook.
Also, make sure you'll earn enough to feed yourself. That is one of the most important points. You are basically taking control of everything and carrying it is a big challenge.
For those who are not sure about dropping out, I'd say, execute your idea on a small level. See how much traction you get. It'll be easier for you to decide once you know what works for you.
