Here is a glimpse into Nirbhay’s journey from being labelled a “weak student” in his formative years to being the youngest Engineer from Gujarat:

 

Nirbhay was born in 2002 and completed his Higher Secondary Education at the age of 13.

Notably he also undertook the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE-Main) and managed to score 75 out of 360. He has an insatiable thirst for knowledge as his ambitious goals include acquiring 10 engineering degress within the next three to four years. He explains that his recipe for success is simple: don’t just memorize but understand. This approach made him formidable amongst academics.

 

He currently studies at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar. Whats his goal? we hear you ask. It is to make the future cooler with his tech skills, especially in defence. He is not just an engineer, he is a superhero of learning, proving that with determination and the right attitude, anything can be achieved. Nirbhay's story reminds us that the sky's the limit when it comes to learning and achieving our dreams.
