• Her message:
My aspiration is to become a professor and pass on my knowledge to the coming generations. From a very young age I had an urge to teach others, and when I got a chance to listen to Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam live, his words inspired me to become a professor. He wasn't just a source of inspiration but my role model in my life who taught me that it is not necessary to be a teacher to teach.
I'm really happy at the moment. This achievement wouldn't have been possible without the guidance of our faculties and management. I would like to thank God, my parents and my family who always supported me in all my endeavors. I'm grateful to Prof. Sudheer Shetty, Dean-Examinations, who is my personal mentor, guide and whose valuable suggestions at every stage have finally borne fruit today.
I would also like to thank Dr. Manjunath Bhandary, Chairman, and Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management for providing us with all the facilities and practical based learning which helps in the overall development of a student's skill set. I would like to extend my gratitude to the Principal, Dean, HoD and the whole department of Computer Science & Engineering for being very supportive at every stage. Last but not the least I would like to thank my friends for always being there for me.
I'd always be grateful to this beautiful institution which has been the backbone to my success.
