# #IntroduceYourself

I'm an Indian resident of 14 years, who is intrigued by Science and Mathematical stuff! I enjoy reading. I love learning something new in science and math. During leisurely times, I use to ponder upon the famous quote by the eminent astrophysicist, Niels Bohr, "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" which is actually very true and bizarre! My ambition is to succeed in becoming an eminent astrobiologist! My view to the world is that "anyone can become a researcher!" :)

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Sanghamitra Anand, i am very happy for you and keep going like that in your life.I turn 14 years old this march and i want to say that when i was in 6th grade i was terrible at math.I was miserable and i wanted so hard to be good at math because my father was good at math and he would not stop pushing me to learn and practice about math.So, in the next summer before i was in 7th grade i started taking some private math lessons , and it's been 1 year and 7 months to be precise since i started to take those lessons and i must say it didn't just help to recover myself but it also made me love math and i started looking up for different math websites and buying all those math books for olympiad and i must say that now i am worthy to compete in olympiad style in my country,Albania.I am also exploiting this discussion to thank Brilliant for the huge help that this website has given to me.Thank you , Brilliant!

Oh, thank you Lorenc Bushi! I too wasn't good at math nor did I have any interest towards it till my 5th grade, only after I met a new maths teacher in my 6th grade, i started gaining an interest and curiosity towards maths. Since then, I'm doing good in maths. But still I've to learn a lot extra! I've planned to do that during my summer holidays in April & May! My interest towards maths has been motivated by many great mathematicians like Shakuntala Devi, and Ramanujan. In maths, I like Algebra, Geometry, Trignometry and Number theory! And also, maths is very important for my ambition, you know? :)

My ambition is to become an astrobiologist! My ambition doesn't end with that! I wish to learn as many things as I can in my lifetime! what's yours? Thank you!

I wanna become a doctor and maybe devote my life after retirement to math...I simply love MATH and that of course doesn't need a mention in this forum. How was your workshop? you didn't tell me about that!

- 6 years, 11 months ago

You didn't ask me about the workshop! Are you planning to do any research in medicine?

- 6 years, 11 months ago

I already asked you. Scroll down and see in this same page. Research in biology after completing a degree in medicine and working as a doctor. THis should be coupled with math too. Now please tell me about THE WORKSHOP! @Sanghamitra Anand

Hey,I want to be a astrophysicist,But can You tell more about your aim & how are are you going to pursue that (Timeline).Cause' I am bit confuse, whether I should go ISRO or IIT for my graduation ...If u have any idea regarding this please share...

- 6 years, 11 months ago

Actually, I have planned to do my higher studies at IISER and then do some PhD in Astrobiology. I want to learn astronomy and also biology(how life was created, etc). That's why I chose this field! Thank you! Could you tell more about your aim too?

- 6 years, 11 months ago

Yep! In astrophysics my basic interest is to challenge things cause' till we are not much sure about life outside the Earth,The time travel,or Beginning of universe...& these topics surely have more things to discover...It has been said-Discovery is what everyone has seen but nobody has thought...But in India research work is less & till govt. is not spending much on it ,Thus creating problem for people who can't afford it.

Great aim! All the best for your future! India will definitely develop in the field of space within a decade!

- 6 years, 11 months ago

Thanks & yours too....Hope India no no no...we Indians will do so!

Hi! Sanghamitra! How was the workshop you attended? Was it good? What were the new things you learnt from that workshop?

- 6 years, 11 months ago

The workshop was awesome! I really enjoyed the workshop! Various higher secondary math basics were covered! The best part was that they gave questions and time for the students to ponder on various concepts, derive formulas, etc... We were also introduced to math related economics!
