I am an E&TC, pre-final year student. I had been a part of WIE RMC last year. I was one of the anchors for the event. Last year though I had been a part of WiE for a short time, I really loved working with the team. The degree to which the planning and professionalism is shown in work, I have hardly seen it anywhere. So, when I was told that this year again there is a call for volunteers, I have been looking forward to work.
I am assigned to the content development team.
