I am a first-generation college student and an immigrant. Growing up in India, I experienced 10-12 hours of power cuts which made me pursue engineering. I started my undergrad in India but eventually transferred to the US (UIUC), where I finished my Mechanical Engineering degree. I’ve been working at a leading energy firm since 2019.
