I, along with my classmates started a Robotics Club in our college. We, in collaboration with IEEE, trained enthusiastic students at free of cost. The importance of being proactive and doing something more than course work used to be our aphorism which we imbibed within the students. They were given certificates from IEEE after clearing an online exam, which proved to be pivotal in their resume. This Club is a legacy of ours which is still running actively by the current students.
Little Butterfly, a brainchild of mine has become a reality with the help of my friends. Though 18 years is the Legal age to marry, child Marriages are predominate in rural areas.

Dr. TiloBurghardts standpoint inspired me to inclined towards this field.
Under his esteem guidance, this scholarship can help me to achieve my goal. I believe that integration of Sciences can help more people in need. So while I embark on my journey to an International arena of studies and creative challenges, if granted this scholarship, I will be highly obliged.
