With pursuing courses in STEM, you are opening horizons not just for your growth, but the growth and betterment of everyone around you.

What do you do?

I work on empowering individuals and organizations globally to successfully monitor the health and availability of their Azure applications.

Why did you choose this field?

I chose this because I found my 5th grade computers class to be extremely interesting and challenging. I started participating in cyber Olympiads and taking up technology quizzing to broaden my skills. I believed then, and still believe than technology can change this world for the better.

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

I remember creating an app for road safety in a hackathon, and I thought to myself that if younger me had known that it was possible maybe I could have helped to save more people.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I wake up looking forward to make the technology I work on better and inclusive for a wide and diverse audience. Technology knows no barriers, and that excites me everyday :)

Best advice for next generation?

With pursuing courses in STEM, you are opening horizons not just for your growth, but the growth and betterment of everyone around you. It's very satisfying to know that what you did made a difference to thousands, if not millions, in the world
