Geetika Mohabe is awardee of the Late Shri Hemant Sonawala Scholarship for Promising Woman Engineering Student for year 2017-18.

She is active in IEEE activities and is functioning as the Chair for her student branch. She is also a part of Training and Placement cell of RCOEM functioning as Chief student Placement Officer.
What does Geetika feels about the scholarship? “Given to the fact that I faced a mishap last year wherein I lost my father who was my mentor, friend and the greatest support, my emotional stability and self confidence had a major setback. My academic graph was at stake. But working as a member of the IEEE community throughout my engineering spree, I was able to regain my confidence. With the support of my professors and fellow volunteers , I learnt about my capabilities and strengths. I pay my earnest reverence to all the people in the IEEE committee who have been a part of my journey till date as they have brought out the best in me. With this scholarship offered to me, my self confidence has reached a new high and the zeal to compete and excel in everything is at its brim.”
Geetika’s goal in life is to create innovative and unique commodities and services that would benefit common man at efficient prices considering the environmental aspects as well. We wish her best luck for her future. Congratulations Geetika!!!
