Statement of Jayesh Kumar Busgeeth, student of Royal College Curepipe and Assembler in FIRST Global Mauritius!
“My name is Jayesh Kumar Busgeeth, also known as Vivek. I am 17 years old, and I live in Terre Rouge, Mauritius.
I am currently a student in grade 13 at the Royal College of Curepipe. I have always been keen on computers, how they function, how their different components communicate, etc. I am also a big car and aeroplane enthusiast. I know a lot about automation, how a machine works, and I can quickly determine how something is functioning. At school, I did Design and Technology and Computer Science for my O-Levels. After that, I chose to stay with Computer science for my A-Levels. I am very passionate about robotics as it fits in all of my passion and how the future relies a lot on robotics.
Being selected to be a member representing Mauritius for the First Global Challenge of 2021 is a prodigious moment for me as I will work with robots. This will help me develop team-building skills and also help me assess my skills and how they may help me in my future
In the team, I have been assigned the role of assembler as I am pretty good with handling tools and have a good knowledge of mechanics. I will also be helping the programmers with coding the robot that we will build as I have some experience with Arduino and Raspberry Pi.”
