Tell us about your day at work?

Every day is a new experience. I learn new things and connect with different minds as a software engineer. But the most important thing is the satisfaction that I get by the end of each day. I am following my passion and growing in this field. This makes me most happy!

What was the inspiration to join this field of work?

I had a keen interest in the networking domain and wanted to pursue my career in it. What is better than joining Zscaler – a leading IT security company, the leader in cloud security. So, I am very grateful that I got the opportunity to work with this organisation. I look forward to each day as a new growth opportunity.

What are your best memories from the ASU days?

There are many best memories, but some of them are so precious that I can never forget them. Having lunch on the terrace in winters, then playing table tennis during our free lectures, and completing assignments in a group in the library. Those moments were so beautiful. I always want to relive them.

A word of advice for the current ASU students?

Explore as much as you can! It doesn’t matter if you failed. Do not overburden yourself. Utilise your time wisely. Follow your area of interest even if it is outside of the curriculum.

Finally, your future targets?

I want to be a better version of myself. I want to gain new skills and learn new technologies. Finally, of course, nothing better than getting promoted to a new role.
