An idea junkie, and business and robotics enthusiast with an obsession for philosophy, debating and books, it's no surprise Nikhil found his place in ISTE. When he isn't occupied attending an ISTE meet or heading LSD's DebSoc, you'll usually find him trying to talk someone into watching Doha Debates or binging the Explained series on Netflix. Don't ever bring up GOT around him though, it's a touchy topic.

For Shreya, delving into anything animals, food and music, is the celebration that follows after finally fixing that ML error after hours spent on it, or having understood something abstruse about trading and the stock market. The best part of her day is watching her biomedical model finally train, while puppies have a dress-up party on YouTube, and her mom yells at her for wreaking havoc in the kitchen trying to make a cheesecake for the 100th time.
