Personal Life

Goswami as born on April 14, 1997 in Singapore, where he studied at Princess Elizabeth Primary School before moving to Calgary in 2004. At 7 years old, Manu tried to start a business by taking the neighbour’s flowers out of their gardens, creating bouquets, and selling the bouquet back to them. Though this endeavour did not last very long, it did solidify his beliefs that "entrepreneurship was a field not restricted by age". Manu began a hovercraft business with his father when he was 10, donating the money from the first and only hovercraft to a local orphanage. In his youth, Manu discovered that his lisp speech impediment had gotten worse, however he decided to embrace it rather than try to hide or correct it. To this date, Manu credits debate and public speaking for helping him overcome it. He was never bullied because of his impediment, but is conscious of the stigma associated to people with verbal, physical, and mental impediments. Manu’s experience instilled his beliefs in the importance of positive social impacts and anti-bullying awareness. [1]
