Volunteer Experience-Sharing

Featuring - Saraja Rambole (IEEE Pune Section)

Back in 2021, sitting at home due to COVID had become very monotonous and I wanted a channel to vent out my energy and show my potential in some or the other way. My constant urge to do something for the community as a whole helped me discover what IEEE actually is. I started with volunteering as the Podcast Team Lead at IEEE Pune Section, unraveling various other avenues it provides along the way.
