Who or what inspires you and why?
I was originally inspired by members of my family who are Chartered Engineers, but as I have continued to develop my skills and experience, I have come to find that my biggest inspiration comes from my peers. Seeing them succeed motivates me to continue working hard so that I can inspire them in return.
How will you shine a spotlight on engineering?
Whilst at University I was a member of the IET on Campus group which ran events designed to promote Engineering. My old school runs career networking events which I would like to return to and share my experiences and advice. I will also continue to post updates on my social media of the projects I am a part of and my achievements.
What are you doing now?
I am now working closely with an Indian telehealth start-up, “CallMyMedic”, which aims to revolutionise preventative healthcare using big data analytics. In light of the current global pandemic, our priority is to get virtual consultations to every Indian household. I am currently developing the Android Application which will help connect patients with doctors and provide a platform for these virtual consultations. Being a part of such a new business has proved to be very exciting as we are hoping to secure funding within the next few months.
