“Being a techie, I’ve always been someone who masters a new technology as it comes out. Once I learn something, I try to implement it in real life. The fact that the project I work on gets global attention excites me beyond words. Another exciting part of being a Millennium Fellow is that I get access to fellows from around the globe with expertise of their own and an international platform to pitch in my ideas for a better tomorrow.”
