Almost exactly a fortnight ago, Edureka had launched the #EdurekaSuper31 Tech Scholarships program in an attempt to help techies bridge their skill gap and take on their dream roles in the IT industry. The idea was to identify 31 technology professionals and students who fit the brand’s criteria of being #SuperTechies. These technology enthusiasts would then be awarded scholarships in the form of premium Edureka courses and Edureka Cash that could help them take their next leap towards their dream job profiles.
Over the course of the campaign, we got hundreds of entries from professionals and students alike. Each applicant had their own unique story to tell, but the one thing they all had in common was their passion for technology and information sciences. While the qualities Edureka was looking for in its 31 #SuperTechies were a passion for technology, ambition, and excellence, the raw stories from the applicants made it extremely difficult to shortlist the final list of winners.
Anyhow, after processing all of the applications, the final 31 were picked who would go on to take advantage of the extremely exclusive tech scholarships. Let’s meet them in their own words now.
Note: If your name is mentioned in the list, we have sent you an email asking for a few details. Kindly reply to this as soon as possible or the scholarship will be transferred to someone else.

Who is Chaitanya?
I have worked as a Python & Django Developer for the past 11 months in a startup company in Visakhapatnam. During this period, my interests drove me to read and learn about Machine Learning, Data Science. And, I did a few sample hobby projects related to computer vision as well.

I am constantly learning something new about Machine Learning, NLP and Python libraries and techniques to update my skillset to crack another job interview and keep myself updated with the industry-demands. And, most of the time, I stumble upon Edureka’s blogs during my browsing sessions and it led me to finally secure a #EdurekaSuper31 Tech Scholarship about which I am very happy about.
Whom did Chaitanya first tell when he won the scholarship and why?
I told my mum about this and she doesn’t have a clue what it is and what it means to me. But, since I am happy about it she is happy about it as well. That’s how all mothers are I guess.
Who is Mariam?
I’m a faculty of computers and information student since 2016. I’ve majored in Computer Science which provided me the chance to learn basic topics like algorithms, procedural programming, OOP, and way more which of course require further self-study. Regular base self-study, in my opinion, is the core skill one gets from faculty and that’s what I used to start learning mobile development and learned how to build my first Android application. The second important skill one gets from University is to live the sharing spirit whether it is with their colleagues or through participating in student activities managed by other students which I’ve joined from a while and now I’ve become aware of how to communicate with different personalities and be friends with others. Currently, I’m a software development intern in 3545Consultancy.
