Vishakhapatnam: GMR Institute of Technology (GMRIT), established by GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMRVF), the corporate social responsibility arm of GMR Group, has done it again in the recently concluded campus internships. MB Adarsh of GMRIT bagged a massive 34.30 lakes package from Amazon.
A final-year Computer Engineering (CSE) student, Adarsh comes from a humble background. Adarsh hails from B. Gonapaputtuga village of Srikakulam district, Andhra Pradesh. Her father currently works as an ASI at the CRPF, and her mother is a housewife.
Speaking about his achievement, Adarsh said, “I started practicing coding initially in our college’s digital library. Since I didn’t have a laptop, my head of department, Dr. AV Ramana, allowed me to use the department’s lab after school hours. I had been constantly working on my coding skills on online platforms like CodeChef, Codeforces, HackerRank. In my third year, I focused on building projects and gaining data science knowledge using Python with my coding practice. I’m glad I was selected by Amazon as a System Development Engineer (SDE) because of the support I received from my parents and college staff who believed in me.
