1. How did you rise up to your position and how can a student aspiring the same, approach it?

 I'm currently in a learning phase and in this phase, there's nothing about reaching a position. Setting up goals and working hard to achieve them helps in reaching the position deserved in any particular field.

2. What's it like to juggle between a leadership role and normal college life? What have been some of your biggest challenges and learnings from what you do?

 Living a day to day routine life or a normal life wouldn't help you learn anything new. The bigger challenges out there in this growing world are learning new things and presenting them differently. I've faced many hurdles down the road while trying out new things and presenting them in a new way.

3. Do you enjoy the kind of influence you hold at such a young age? 

I hope I spread the positive influence out there. And I believe that if I could bring out a positive change from anyone out there then that will be a great joy for me.

4. How do your parents look at you participating in extracurricular activities? What are your career goals and how is what you are doing going to help you with that? What are the top skills that you have learned with what you do? 

They are happy with whatever the good things I'm participating in and they are sometimes worried about the academics due to my participation in extracurricular activities.

I do set up one permanent goal and then set up a few temporary goals to achieve the permanent one. In the first phase, I work to achieve these temporary goals and that helps me to gain the confidence to succeed.
To believe in me and to believe in the work I do. The communication skills helped me to reach out to many influential people out there.

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

The career goal which I've set up has nothing to do with my degree. I'm passionate about something else and students who are passionate about academics and internships and trying out new things must start doing internships and going to the conferences. That boosts the skills which they require out there to succeed in the technical field.
