“I have a great passion for science since I was a kid. I developed my ambition of becoming a scientist when I was pursuing a 5th standard. I dreamt of going to the NASA Space Research Centre in the United States. This dream of mine is becoming true and gives me immense pleasure. My inspiration was the late former President Abdul Kalam. My aim is to become a scientist like him and serve the nation. I trust that this NASA journey would be an inspiration for my dreams”.
