“Actually, I just woke up one day and decided I didn’t want to feel like that anymore, or ever again So I changed. Just like that..”
ONE such dream turned into reality when a group of engineering students visualized a dream. Dream of changing current scenario of students in India, Dream of increasing women participation in technology and a dream to grow.
GirlScript India Summit was an initiative by GirlScript Foundation to organise India’s First Women Oriented TechFest. GirlScript started in 2017, to support women in technology, promote gender equality in tech and to help beginners in technology.It’s an open platform for people irrespective of age, gender, religion etc.
India Summit was an initiative to make other people about this step of ours towards equality. The main attractions were-
TECHNICAL AND MOTIVATIONAL TALKS:
Not only national but one international speaker joined us for enlightening the participants. From virtual reality to spirituality,there were different tracks of the talks. The speakers were extremely good and well interacted with the students.
This event was the biggest attraction. Each and every participant were trying to put their level best. It was a chance to grab an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and to bring out new things. Everyone out there in this event was with a zeal to win. And even here there was a motto behind this event was to bring out the hidden talent in girls in technology. The only condition was a compulsory presence of at least one girl participant in a team and this was the plus point of this event.
21 ON 21 YOUTH AWARDS was an another motivating and a time of appreciating the youth who had achieved something great at a young age before being of 21 years old. There were many nominations for this award and many such were even awarded.
As every effort needs to be awarded and appreciated and also memories need to be made this event ended with a cake cutting ceremony with all its team members and last but not the least it’s very most important participants and all its attendants.
