Srinagar: Eighteen-year-old Adeeba Tak from Shopian district in south Kashmir has brought laurels to the valley by securing admission in the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) USA to pursue Mechanical Engineering. She has been offered 100% scholarship to pursue the course. “I always wanted to be an aeronautical engineer. Looking at the planes in the sky always gave me goose bumps. I was always excited about learning the engineering behind this,” Adeeba told TwoCircles.net. “Getting into UPenn is a dream come true. My faculties at RiSE, especially Mubeen Sir and Salman Sir always guided me for the same. Their strategies regarding tackling any exams or interviews have been very helpful. I want everyone from Kashmir especially my hometown Shopian to always dream big,” she said.
Adeeba was hand-picked by RiSE team in 2015 when she topped the first edition of RiSE talent search examination. RiSE was set up in 2012 by IITians to coach and empower talented Kashmiri students to get into prestigious educational institutions.
