Note: This is something I wrote during college

I am not new to writing, but yes this is my first ever online blog post. Although, I got over 1 Lakh views as well as became one of the top writers in one of the categories on Quora in my first month.

I am currently a final year student pursuing B.Tech.(Computer Science and Engineering). Along with this, I am volunteering for IEEE at Asia-Pacific level.

I was brought up in Panipat, Haryana (India). I come from a humble family of four, consisting of my father, mother, brother and myself. Coming from a tier-II city instills you with moral values like respect, loyalty, harmony etc.

I read in DAV Public School, Thermal Colony, Panipat. I was decent at studies. Apart from studies, I was quite active in sports and other extra-curricular activities. The activities ranged from being the house vice-captain, achieving third position at state level cricket position to writing for Centre for Science and Environment. After being introduced to HTML and then JAVA, I knew I had to go for computers.

I took admission at a decent engineering college in New Delhi with Computer Science stream. I started familiarizing with certain languages and concepts along with coursework. After taking advises from seniors, I started working on becoming a full stack developer and grabbed two paid internships. Under the guidance of ex-Dean of our college, I presented a paper at the International Conference on Futuristic Trends in Computational Analysis and Knowledge Management. After this, I published two more research papers, all of them being based on Genetic Algorithm. Recently, I was shortlisted for the Google India Challenge Scholarship for the Front-End track.

Alongside, I joined non-profit organizations like Mozilla and IEEE. In Mozilla, I served for the “Take back the web campaign”, where we worked to raise awareness and empower other students to make choices about how their personal information is used online. With IEEE, I started as the Technical Director of our student branch, where I supervised the technical activities and also presided over our annual technical fest, Colossus. After this, I was appointed as the Editorial Lead at Delhi Section, where not only I supervised with the content aspect, but also volunteered for organizing various technical activities like hackathons and student congress. Recently, I also volunteered for organizing World Utility Summit’18 which was attended by over 300 delegates from 50 different countries. For the last 2 years, I have been working with IEEE Asia-Pacific Region’s Newsletter, R10 Today.

Currently, I am looking forward to associate myself with an excelling organization and further nurture my skills.
