My journey started 13 years ago, when my father took me to VT Station to see the ‘Science Express’ organised by BASF. On the train I witnessed innovations of the future one such innovation I recall was a music system which identified songs when hummed. An hour later I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in science and one day I would work at BASF, the company responsible for my interest in science. My actions from that moment on were directed towards this goal and when I came across IGTC, I believe I had found the path. Discussions encouraged by professors along with innovative assignments transformed the way I thought. My internship at Merck Life Sciences Ltd. gave me invaluable industry experience, it allowed me to travel across the country and interact with customers. Each of these experiences helped pave the way to be selected by my dream company. I am immensely grateful to IGTC for helping me tick off the top-most item on my bucket list!
