Please tell us about the work that is expected from a software developer?

Well, developing a number of different websites. When I was working with the Haryana Enterprises Promotion Center, I would maintain their website, check the mails and manage everything else. It was total coding work. I did coding in Java and Cassandra databases.

What inspired you to become a computer engineer?

I loved coding during my undergraduate studies in Fatehchand College. I was already inspired to go for post graduation and hence, I went on to pursue my Master’s in Computers. I found out my passion is in coding. I loved coding even in my free time. 

Please tell us about your best memories from Apeejay Charkhi Dadri days?

I really enjoyed attending practical classes for both Physics and Chemistry. Actually, everyone in my batch used to like it a lot. The teachers would pay proper attention to each and every student. We all diligently used to take the readings in the lab. We studied the various chemical bases and everything else in a lot of detail.  

What life lessons would you give to the current students in the school?

I would say, do not ignore the school activities. Follow the guidelines of the teachers, that will take you far. The teachers are so highly qualified at Apeejay. They are dedicated with all their heart for the development of the students, so listen to them. Do not ignore the little lessons you learn in life.

What are your future targets?

There is a gap in my CV due to my marriage and responsibilities. So, I am trying to secure a job in the IT industry. I am also helping my husband with his business at the moment.
