Describe your best moment at Elevate K-12. Be specific!
There was a vital component to our last release which had undergone multiple iterations. There was even the danger of us missing our deadline at one point. Despite a few hiccups, we were able to launch in time. When the component ran successfully on the live server across multiple sessions, it was an incredible moment of joy and relief.
Tell us a little more about who you are–what do you like to do?
I am a travelholic! I am a passionate traveler, trekker, photographer, rider, driver, and also love the work that I do for a living. I’m also very interested in DIY electronics.
One of my proudest achievements is trekking to an altitude of 20,000+ feet despite not being in the ideal weight category.
Thanks, Amritansh T.
