After getting admission in Computer Science, I joined Mozilla (A global nonprofit organization) in 2014 where I learned about Localization and its importance to the society. Contribution to Mozilla for around 4 years improved my translation skills in both Hindi and English. 

Schooling in Hindi improved my language skills. Strong focus on grammar skills for both Hindi and English strengthened my foundation. Living in both semi-urban and urban environment gave me exposure and ability to interchangeably use both Hindi and English.
