Hello everyone! My name is Aditi Reddy. I am from India. I am currently in my second year doing BEng Electronics and Communications engineering with a Year in Industry.
I spent the first 17 years of my life in India. Whenever I thought of a career I wanted to do something that makes this world a better place and adds value to it. I wanted to get into a field that challenges me frequently hence I chose engineering. When I started doing my course I realized that there was a huge gender imbalance not just in my branch of engineering but in other branches as well. My involvement with the society in my first year made me realise that a lot of young girls have pre conceived notions about engineering and thus are not sure about doing it. I really wanted to change that as I strongly feel that every person, irrespective of their gender should make educated choices about their careers and I am determined to help people do that.
As the Co-Vice President my main responsibility is to make the society bigger and better. For that I would be address the concerns and expectations of students. I am fully committed towards helping students within the scope of the society and beyond.

Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Once you overcome your fears the rewards will be endless.
