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 & 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.
