Prevailing over hurdles!
Gaining practical knowledge alongside academics was not that straight-forward. In India, most parents are quite traditional when it comes to sending their daughters to university in another city. When Aakanksha joined college, she saw most of the students living a relish life by partying most of the time. She chose to be on the different side of it and joined a tech community where she learned new things each day.
She worked on projects, collaborating with designers and other developers to ship the projects to the end-user. This helped her to expand her horizons beyond academics. In the same way, communities had helped her shape her career, she now helps her colleagues to grow as better developers.
