In the year 2009, I emigrated from India to Southwest Virginia. Going from a developing country to one that is a leader in innovation helped me realize the power of technology and I was instantly infatuated. At the age of 13, I developed my first website. Though it was relatively rudimentary, I enjoyed the process so much that I decided to build my skills.
Eventually, I replaced my infatuation with a true passion for computers. Since then, I have worked with multiple individuals, companies, and non-profit organizations, trying to better my surroundings with the skill and talent I possess. However, I know there is so much more I can learn and do for the community, which is why I decided to pursue a degree in computer science.
As a third year student at Virginia Tech, I am expanding my skills in designing advanced algorithms and developing software. I look forward to working with others in my field to leave the world better than I found it.
