Journey
I was not interested that much in Computer Science till I entered college and parents told to join CSE as my future option. When I started learning a coding language as part of curriculum it made me keen to learn more about different coding languages.
Application story
I always wanted to join Amazon as it was my dream to work in a big company. I applied for this role when my senior told me that he was working at Amazon and there is a position available that fits you. So I applied for the same and after that 2 interview rounds were scheduled.

I was selected as I had practiced a lot of coding questions when I was in college. I basically took a course from Coding Ninjas to prepare and practice them.
