Back in those days when I just started to get the glimpse about the evolution of technology around me, it excited me to explore more into this field. But being a girl, to come out of her comfort zone and achieve things in a greater perspective is very slim from the community where I was born, But I am thankful to my parents who constantly supported me throughout and let me achieve things. Now standing at this point in my life, breaking through all the shackles of the society, I proudly look back into the eyes of that girl I was and say "Never be afraid to take a step".

Given the opportunity of being a part of such platform, I can see that my skill will be uplifted by the experience I gain from it. This would literally help me out to share my knowledge to the people around me.
