Telengana's youngest female engineer is only 16!

Instead of giving her class 10 board exams this year, Kasibhatta Samhitha gave her papers for the last semester in B. Tech and achieved a Bachelor's degree in engineering (in electrical and electronics).
Education NewsSamhitha gave these exams five years ahead of students her age, who were preparing for their class 10 board exams. Her inspiring journey started at a young age which has led her to become Telengana's youngest female engineer.

Samhitha always had a deep-rooted love for knowledge. According to her parents, she had started naming countries across the globe and could name the capitals correctly by the age of three.

Right from age three, we saw a spark in her. She memorized every poem and identified flags/capitals of 200 countries with absolute ease.

She cleared her class 10 exams at the age of 10 and secured a total GPA of 8.8. After clearing her class 10 exams from the Good Samaritan's High School, she completed her Intermediate course with 89 percent marks from Nalanda Junior College.

Even after facing several obstacles, the 16-year-old girl finally completed the four-year professional course with the help of her parents' motivation and the government's helpful push.

Because of the government's rule of having certain age criteria for obtaining the degree, Samhitha initially faced disappointment. Her parents' constant appeal to the government made the authorities notify her talent and she acquired a seat in the Chaitanya Bharati Institute of Technology (CBIT).

Because of her exceptional talent, the state government exempted her from appearing for the Engineering, Agriculture, and Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET).

As she has now acquired a B. Tech degree, the next step for her is pursuing M. Tech. Even after being a teenager she cleared a job interview during campus placements for an agro-based firm, she can't choose to pursue it because of her young age.
