M. Sc. Biotechnology, University of Helsinki, Finland
I am a proud alumnus of K.K. Wagh College of Agricultural Biotechnology (KKWCABT), Nashik and studied B.Sc. Agricultural Biotechnology in the 2011-2015 batch. In 2015, I received a scholarship from the European Union to study M. Sc. Biotechnology in Finland. I feel honourable to have received this opportunity of fully funded higher education in a foreign country. However, I believe that my education in KKWCABT has played an important role in making me capable of such an opportunity. Later, during my master’s education, I continued to explore my interests and gained Biotechnology training from institutes in Lithuania, Germany and Denmark on different topics. Currently, I have completed my master’s education and I am preparing for a Ph.D. in Astrobiology (which is another one of my interests) and/or Biotechnology. I believe there is still a long way to go and many more things to achieve.
Finally, I would like to share a message to all those students that might come across this story. If you have a passion, an interest, don’t let it go just for the sake of good scores. Of course, you need to study hard and gain enough knowledge in order to excel in your field of interest. Good scores can take you high, but knowledge makes you great. So, keep doing what excites you. Keep learning, keep growing!
