Hello Everyone! Thanks for dropping by!
I am Diksha Gupta and I hail from New Delhi, India. I am a graduated student and pursued my degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) from Delhi Technological University (DTU). I’ve always had a keen interest in academics and been among the top 10% students of my class throughout my academic career. I had developed a knack for Computer Science at an early age, and have taken various initiatives throughout my academic life to pursue the same.
My core values are:
- Curiosity: I love to learn and explore new things. My hunger for gaining knowledge has kept me motivated to learn about new cultures, languages, and technology. My ability to learn the right and unlearn the wrong has aided my growth as an individual and I have become better at accepting and welcoming changes.
- Compassion: I love to help the people around me and help them in solving their problems. This quality of mine helped me to come out of my introverted shell and make more friends and lifelong connections.
- Courage: I have always believed in being bold and courageous. I am never afraid to speak my mind, and I welcome criticism and correct myself whenever I am wrong. After all, accepting your mistakes and improving yourself is a courageous deed!
Getting selected as an Outreachy intern has been the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I got to know about open source programs in October last year. I decided to apply for the Outreachy May 2021 internship tenure, and I worked very diligently during the contribution period, but wasn’t expecting to get selected as an intern on the first go! Contributing to the projects during the contribution period was so much fun, and it gave me the chance to get a hands-on experience with some tools and technologies that I didn’t explore before. The next three months of the internship are going to be a great learning experience, and I’m really looking forward to it!
