Believe in yourself. Never give up at any time.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am an automotive embedded system engineer. I develop automotive infotainment system applications. My role involves but not confine to requirement gathering, design, development of the automotive infotainment applications and, quality assurance of the system

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I had a good aptitude for logical reasoning, solving mathematical problems and, puzzles. thus this field came naturally to me and I worked on my part to get one of the best engineering colleges to be able to further pursue my interest.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

I could have been more selective in the choice of my courses when enrolling for the STEM subjects in college. That would have opened up more options for me early on rather me discovering it on the job about software development.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I love the idea of creating something new each day. Be it a new improvement in the existing system or getting to know the system better and evaluating the best course of action for a new use case

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Believe in yourself. Do never give up at any time. Keep going and pushing yourself for greater learning.
