I feel proud to be a CR and debating society member as I am a very introverted person. I belong to a very small village where I didn't have facilities to speak in front of lots of people and didn't get a chance to learn lots of things. So, I am thankful to God to give me such opportunities by which I could develop such confidence in myself.

5. What's your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?

My message for all the students to do an internship is that it can build your CV through which you can learn new skills. And for seminars and workshops, I would like to say that, you can learn communication skills and gain knowledge.
