Jubin was nominated with the following motivation:

"Jubin’s passion for sustainability led him to network with Swedish companies, assist in organizing Dalarna’s first Solar Energy fair, and identify market opportunities for new solar technologies. He represents and inspires his peers, assists in labs, and mentors first-year students while achieving top grades. Sweden taught him to balance work and personal life and how to swim (he helped arrange a free swim course so international students could enjoy summer in Dalarna.) Modest, sincere, and outstanding, he is our Global Swede."

Listen to Jubin present himself and explain his motivations for studying Solar Energy Engineering.
