Rajashekar Panasa is a BTech student from Vijayanagaram, which is located in Andhra Pradesh of India. When it came time to choose his career option in the 12th grade Rajashekar chose to study BTech in order to bring diversity to his family’s knowledge, as his brother was pursuing a career as a chartered accountant. With only one of his parents working, he was worried about the strain his career choice would put on his family and found out about the Next Step Foundation through social media.

Without his NSF scholarship, Rajashekar would not be where he is now, as this help came at the junction of his career. Currently, in his fourth year of the BTech program, he has excelled in his studies and aims at becoming a ‘techie’. He wishes to become someone who people can turn to and rely on his knowledge of technology and computers.
