My journey as part of the Nirma Robocon team from 2020 to 2024 has been incredibly rewarding and transformative. Initially, I felt uncertain and overwhelmed. While many first-year students enjoyed a more relaxed college life, I dedicated myself to working tirelessly, often questioning if my efforts were worthwhile. However, this dedication proved to be a significant turning point.

Our first national victory in 2021 was a moment of immense pride and confidence for me and the team. This achievement affirmed our hard work and set the stage for continued success. We maintained our momentum by winning the national competition again in 2022 and securing 2nd runners-up in the international competition. These accomplishments were not just milestones but lessons in resilience, perseverance, and the power of teamwork.Throughout this journey, the unwavering support from our university professors, friends, and family played a crucial role. Their encouragement and guidance were invaluable, helping us navigate challenges and celebrate our victories. This experience has taught me the importance of a strong support system and consistent effort.

With the skills and experiences gained from the Nirma Robocon team, I successfully secured a position as an Embedded System Engineer at Noccarc Robotics. This role aligns perfectly with the work I did with the team, and I am grateful for the foundation it provided.

The establishment of the Centre for Robotics at our university is a testament to its commitment to fostering innovation and learning. This initiative will undoubtedly inspire and equip future students to explore and excel in the field of robotics, just as I have.
