No matter how small your ambitions and dreams are just take a step fearlessly.

What do you do?

I am currently studying so my job right now is to gain the research experience. But in future I would like to work for female entrepreneurship and youth involvement in Agriculture.

Why did you choose this field?

As I am from an agricultural country and belong to a farming family, my interest grew organically. Similarly the reason I chose this masters program is to study the alternatives to chemical pesticide use which is beneficial for consumers and environmentally friendly. In the future I would like my work to fill the gap between scientific research and involvement of women in agriculture.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I wish my younger self had known that no matter how small your ambitions and dreams are just take a step fearlessly. It does not matter if you succeed or not you would satisfy your inner self. Don't be scared to take a leap.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I am looking forward to more and more women farmers becoming educated.

Best advice for next generation?

STEM will keep you curious in life.
