A computer engineer by choice and a poet by heart, Shubhangi Raj has always believed that the pursuit of knowledge is more important than the pursuit of marks. With several remarkable achievements at school—distinctive performance in science and maths Olympiads, winning in inter-school chess competition, developing a robot to win a robotics competition, learning and mastering SQL, winning 6 consecutive scholar badges—this studious teenager from Mumbai has always been fascinated by Artificial Intelligence, virtual reality, internet-connected devices, crowdsourcing, robotics, nanotechnology and cloud computing.
So when it came to choosing a college for higher studies, she decided to explore her options abroad. Canada was her country of choice and when her application was accepted at the University of Waterloo, she was ecstatic. Shubhangi is constantly looking to develop her software skills and dreams of being an innovator.
