At the early stages of her under graduation, sahithi always wanted to try new things, meet new people and that is when she got to know about IEEE. In first year of her Bachelor’s, she has attended few seminars that are being conducted in her IEEE Student Branch, she find them very insightful. When she heard about the enormous opportunities in IEEE like networking, conducting events and sharing the knowledge, it excited her a lot and especially the concept of Women in Engineering Affinity Group attracted her so much that is when she decided to become an IEEE Volunteer and that one decision took her to the heights.
As an IEEE Volunteer she has contributed her part in organizing many student branch events and webinars. These helped many students for their technological advancement. In addition to these, She has always done her part in making posters, content and also Event Management. She says these are not the proud moments as an IEEE volunteer because the best is yet to come and she will always thrive for that.
This IEEE community offers a lot of benefits for an IEEE Volunteer and some of them are getting opportunity to become Mentee in ‘Mentor for her’ program, and she got one of the best mentor Dr Ray Cheung from Hong Kong, his guidance helped her a lot in taking decisions.
