Being a 21st century learner myself, I can certainly vouch that this award will further foster my drive towards science & research & fuel my curiosity for technological innovations & developments. Being a physics fanatic, I want to pursue a career in a field where I too can integrate automobile engineering & coding, both being genres I’m vastly interested in.”
