What do you consider your greatest achievement to date?

Sanjana Rajesh: I think it would currently be the success of the solar lights in the village khoripada. We have volunteers who go back to check on how the lights are working and I found that everyone who had one set up their house is using it. This accomplishment has fulfilled me in a way that is different from the others, knowing that I did change their lives in a way for the better. That feeling is very powerful.

SR: I’m very proud to be woman to watch! it is a feeling of support, that my endeavors and my dreams are being supported and this helps me in driving me towards my achievements. I feel supported and as though my purpose also has more meaning towards it.

What do you plan to do with biomedical engineering? How will that major help you further your life goals?

SR: With BME, I plan to go into prosthetics design and further ahead into cancer research. My life goal is to make a difference in people’s lives for the better and I feel engineering, especially biomedical, will help me further this goal.

Who in your life most inspires you?

What advice do you have for other ambitious collegiettes with a goal/dream?
