I am Professor Kishore from the Department of Computer Science - Jai Hind College - Chennai. I would like to use this letter to recommend one of my students Ms. Ambika Sharma for a place on the MS in Computer Science programme offered at Ball State University.
Ambika completed her BSc Computer Science course with an excellent overall score of 91%. As part of her project in her final semester of study she worked along with two of her classmates on building a role-play game devised for the Android platform. The game is called ‘Muka’ and is an extremely popular and addictive game with attractive graphics.
Ambika is soft-spoken, hard-working and multi-talented; she is a trained classical dancer and has won many prizes for her dance performances in numerous inter-collegiate youth-festivals. Ambika wishes to complete her MS in Computer Science and plans to start a company that will focus on developing multi-platform compatible mobile and computer applications.
I wish Ambika all the very best in her academic pursuit and hope that she will get a chance to study the MS in Computer Science programme at Ball State University.
