Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I love to participate in science competitions. The theme for this year's Young Scientist Challenge interested me and encouraged me to participate.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
I love the fact that science provides answers to so many questions. For everything that goes on around us, there is a scientific reason. I love studying about organisms, human body, environment etc. I love performing hands-on experiments.
In 15 years I hope to be...
I would like to be a neurosurgeon. I am intrigued by the human brain and its functions. The abilities of a human brain are amazing. I would also like to actively participate in community service activities that involve building awareness and help protect our environment.
