Learning from the #I am Remarkable initiative by Google aimed at motivating people to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond, I am writing my journey of Successes in this blog and I will share my definition of Success. Let’s see how much you agree with me!
What it mean to be successful?
Does it mean to be the topper of the room? Does it mean to be a domain expert? Does it mean to have a good government job? Or, a combination of all of these attributes?
I often get messed up with the definition of success. I believe in living my dreams and following the passion. If you feel earning a huge salary is success, if having too many friends is success then do that. The point is, it should give satisfaction to you!
The purpose of this blog is to list my achievements, which I can look back at, if I feel demotivated in life.
Looking back at our past achievements produces a satisfying happiness boost. Thinking about our wins makes us feel like a winner.
1. An avid Speaker and Debater
Since my school days, I have been praised for being a good orator. I have been to some national level debate competitions as well✨ I love anchoring programmes. In my college I successfully hosted 10+ events 🤗

3. Full Stack Android Developer at Backstage Supporters Private Limited
After the semester exams I was offered the internship opportunity from one of the Software Companies in Delhi, where I was given a complete project(Android and customer oriented) to be completed within a month or so. I managed to make the wireframes with help of Balsamiq, frontend using Adobe and for backend I used firebase. It was the first time I worked on any industrial projects :D
4. Joined StartUp EazyPG at Delhi Technological University
Link on playstore. The thing I liked about this internship was, I got to work on my favourite tool Github with the team unlike last time where the project was customer centric and so they bothered only about the apk, tech stack I used was a secondary thing there.
5. Remote Internship, Software Company in Canada
Again it was a very interesting opportunity for me since I was first timer remote intern 🙈 Here also little bit similar to 1st one I was the only Developer for Project Network Analyzer working under guidance of R.P.Gill and Navdeep Sir. Since the Company head was in Canada, so we used to discuss everything over Google Hangouts only. I used to submit my weekly update to them. After this project, I feel I can do anything xD, be it frontend or backend.
It is a special interest group that supports women & men who study or are interested in Computer and Information Science. I am invited to be in the Content and Dev team at osDFS. Check here- https://www.osdfs.in/

It was a wonderful experience for me. Instead of GirlScript Contributor’s Meet 2020, it should be GirlScript Scholars Meet 2020. I personally felt it was very much similar to any scholar program like GHC, GHCI etc. I have to complete my blog on the meet’s experience but procrastination! :P It will be too long if I will explain the entire journey here 🙈 Summary- GirlScript Foundation selected top 50 applicants from all over India. They booked the flight tickets, accomodation, food and many special arrangements were made for all the applicants 💛
