During my time at MIT-WPU, I was presented with a multitude of enriching opportunities that allowed me to refine my academic, leadership, and public speaking skills, among others. My growth extended beyond academics, as I undertook the responsibility of orchestrating the college-level annual event "Prism," a role that honed my leadership and management capabilities. The HackMITWPU hackathon provided another platform for me to shine, emerging as the 1st Rank winner with the innovative AgroExpert solution tailored for farmers' needs.

At MIT-WPU, it has been a wonderful experience. I had the incredible good fortune and luck to be a member of the MIT-WPU SOLA, which fostered my personal development. Lots of admiration, dedication, and affection for the whole faculty and department. The whole faculty and department work tirelessly to mold one's destiny. It has been a tremendous three years of study and exposure to the outside world at MIT. I consider myself to be a much better professional and person because of their efforts and hardwork. Forever grateful.
