We girls are meant for great things and let nothing convince us otherwise.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am majoring in Statistics and pursuing a career in Mathematical Science. I am a maths geek and a language connoisseur. A statistician at heart, happiest with numbers, you can trust them and they do not deceive. No mystery, allegory, or deception. What you see is what you get!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I always loved to play with numbers, representing and solving complex real-life phenomena through equations and other mathematical models always intrigued me. I maintain a stellar academic throughout and thus, chose STEM field as a career to satisfy my quest for knowledge and never looked back which has made all the difference!
HOW DO/DID YOU TACKLE OBSTACLES?
STEM field is a path less traveled upon by girls. There still exists the notion that our male counterparts have a better aptitude and flair for the subject and I've always shunned this herd mentality no matter what it required.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
I wish my younger self had known the modern ways of studying online as I mostly relied on conventional textbooks during my school which took a lot of time. I wish I had more avenues open in terms of opportunities and mentorship, belonging to a small town.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
I love to analyze data and add my perspective to draw conclusions. The thing that fascinates me most about statistics is that it is very dynamic, Each time I apply any result, I discover something new because of which this field will never go obsolete and has even wider application in the days to come. Data is the new oil that feeds the think-tank of our nation.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
