“I was inspired by the First Robotics program in the 5th grade, where I led the team to the FLL competitions as a team leader. This is where we won the Judge’s choice award for our innovation project, and since then I developed a passion for Robotics. I could clearly envision the impact of robotics today and how it would benefit the future generations tomorrow. I would like to share my passion and thoughts with others and make them a part of this transformation journey. Thank you to CSK Foundation for supporting my vision and encouraging my thought process of starting a new robotics community CSK Robotics”
