I work as an Intern exploring various parts of the Machine Learning technology used within Fotech.
When did you start with Fotech?
I started working at Fotech Last summer, completing now my second summer as an intern at Fotech.
What has been your standout experience so far? or What do you enjoy most about your role?
My favourite part of the role is working with Fotech's inspiring developers and engineers on fast-paced projects that allow me to push my knowledge and capabilities while learning a lot along the way.

I've got to work on an exciting project exploring Machine learning devices and their various capabilities and challenges.
Any advice to people who want to work in a role like yours?
I would advise Students like myself working in Intern roles to not expect to know everything before you start, but to be open-minded and challenge yourself to learn as much as you can while you have these exciting opportunities.
What do you like doing in your spare time?
In my spare time, I love to play rugby and volunteer as a crisis volunteer for a mental health charity.
