Kousalya R

I am a 2012 FFE scholar from Shimoga, Karnataka. I was single-handedly brought up by my mother. Though she herself was never educated she was determined that I should go to school and study well. She worked in the fields every day to get me through school. When I scored 95% in my 12th, everyone suggested I persue Engineering and that is when I was introduced to an FFE facilitator Mr. Nagaraj.

There was no turning back from there. With financial help from FFE, I pursued my Engineering in one of the best colleges of Karnataka- R.V College of Engineering. I was then recruited to Buhler India Pvt Ltd, a Swiss Company through campus recruitment. I currently work at Mysore City Corporation as an Assistant Engineer.

I am also deeply passionate about social causes and actively take part in environment related activities.

I am elated to be part of FFE and its alumni activities. Interacting with alumni has greatly helped and allowed me to bloom as a person.
