I was studying at a university in Delhi when I got the opportunity to intern at a renowned technology company in Bangalore. This was a significant event as it was my first exposure to the professional world.

Moving to Bangalore, I was both excited and nervous. The city, known as the “Silicon Valley of India”, was a hub of innovation and technological advancement. I was going to work with experienced professionals on real-world projects.

The internship was challenging but incredibly rewarding. I was part of a team developing a new software application. The work was intense and required learning new programming languages and problem-solving techniques.
