TESTIMONIALS

  • My advice to youngsters is that while applying for GHCI tell really what you want to do in GHCI because surfing for answers in Google will not work. It is a one-time golden opportunity, try to make the best out of it -- Janani Ramachandran

  • I have been attending GHCI for three years now. I started as a GHCI student scholar in 2017. I had the opportunity to meet a number of incredible people and create connections. I also got the good fortune of getting hired to Microsoft at GHCI 2017 and coming back to GHCI 2019 as a Microsoft Delegate. GHCI would always hold a dear place in my life since it is where my career journey started --Karthika Baiju
