My entire experience at Amazon was absolutely amazing and productive. I got to learn from some of the best people in the industry…I enhanced my problem solving skills as my project involved integration of newest technologies in Kindle devices. This experience also helped me work on my communication skills in a corporate environment. Making progress in a project that will cater to thousands of customers gave me enough sense of motivation. I worked on implementing an end to end functionality in Kindle reader.

As an AFE scholar, I want to give my best in the team and contribute to the company’s success. Amazon has provided incredible opportunity by concentrating on our professional and personal growth. It conducts boot-camps under AFE Scholarship and have us mentored by experts to do better and grow in our skills. I feel that it is a greater responsibility to put in our efforts and utilize this chance in our growth and overall success for me and Amazon.

I am thrilled to achieve the AFE scholarship from Amazon and was very happy to receive the opportunity to visit along with my parents to the AFE carnival. I am pursuing my computer science engineering in AI and Machine Learning as my specialty. I believe the AFE internship program is a big step to learn more, improve my communication, and interact with AFE scholars and interns. I could see my future here.
