About Me

Hi, I’m Rika. I am currently an undergraduate student in India studying electronics and communication engineering. Growing up I always had a passion for space and decided that I wanted to pursue a career in astronautics early on. I enjoy volunteering for education, outreach and representation for women and gender minorities within STEM. I started WoAA (Women of Aeronautics and Astronautics) India in August 2020 and have since then worked with multiple student communities within India and Abroad. I enjoy writing, photography and painting!
