Why did you choose this field?

I have been an astrophile for the longest time, the idea of rocket science fascinates me. I want to break the notion that rocket science is tough, hence got into the field. I have interned at Air India, learnt about aeronautics. I have worked on the CanSat problem by NASA, in the mechanical subsystems. I want to start an online platform in astronomy for students and am working under the same as OneSpace manager in SEDS India

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

I wish I had known about the various scholarships and competitions, NASA, ISRO and DRDO offer.
To be more actively involved in the space community.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I enjoy learning about the working of machienry, especially astronautics. I read extensively about astronomy, and love to innovate.

Best advice for next generation?

Never think that being girl is a weakness, you can pursue any field you want, once you put your mind to it.
