You can do it.

What do you do?

I am Machine learning engineer in the research team.

Why did you choose this field?

I have been a fan of Computers since childhood. As a teenager it was fascinating for me how we can code our own applications. In bachelors , I found out that world out there is trying not only to create applications, but training them to run oun their own by making them think like human. It was a awe-inspiring mind blowing discovery for me and this was the field I wanted to persue my career in.

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

My first ML project, autonomous car using deep learning

Why do you love working in STEM?

This field is filled with so many opportunities to develop the society around you. Either by making other digital aware, or introducing a new health care applications. I would like to go to sleep every night thinking I've done something good for society today, and would wake up do to something more

Best advice for next generation?

You can do it. No matter what other people or circumstances say. If this is your passion, there's no power in the world that can stop you from persuing it but you have to start taking step for it right now.
