At the time when most of us were prepping up to go to the first day of our school, Kasibhatta Samhitha surprised her parents by correctly naming the capitals of the countries across the globe, just at the age of three.
Fully encouraged by her parents, she continued as she cleared Class IV at the same age and Class X by the time she turned 10. Then she scored an 8.8 GPA in Class X and 89 per cent in her Class XII exams in 2014, for which she appeared from Nalanda Junior College.
After her class 12th, her parents approached the Telangana Government to allow her to pursue engineering, where she was falling short of age. At the age of 12, the Telangana Government exempted her from an entrance exam (EAMCET) to get into a professional course which is mandatory for admission to some engineering and medical colleges in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The young engineer secured a seat in Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (CBIT) in 2014 and aced her bachelors with an 8.85 GPA in the electronics stream.
Samhitha told ANI, “I want to get into the sector to serve the country and bring it at par with rest of the world. I cleared class 10 at the age of 10 years. I secured 8.8 GPA in 10th and 89 per cent in Intermediate. I then approached the govt for pursuing engineering as I needed age relaxation. I opted for electrical and electronics engineering which I cleared with 8.85 GPA.”
“I feel that there could be more developments done in the power sector of India that is the reason I want to be a part of it. My next plan is to do M. Tech and if the government allows I want to start my research,” she said.
She now wants to pursue M.Tech, even though she cleared her campus interview with an agro-based firm, but her age became a barrier.
Samitha is yet another Indian who has made every citizen proud, we wish her all the best for her future endeavours.
Samhitha’s father LN Kasibhatta said, “It’s really a very proud moment for us.”
Knowledge and learning have no bounds, and neither does Samitha.
