27 Jul Team Tajikistan 2019 🇹🇯
I was raised in a region called Bobojon Gafurov. From my earlier childhood I wasn’t an ordinary child, as I liked doing adventurous things. Every day of my childhood was like a second chance for me to do what gave me pleasure. Watching interesting cartoons on TV, playing football with my friends, going to swimming pools on summer days and many other interesting activities. I thought that my childhood memories are the best memories that I would ever have, until it was the time for me to enter the world of academics. As like any child I wasn’t so happy about attending school, but day after day I got accustomed to it. During my school life I was really interested in innovations and making innovative things. Being interested in innovative things, one day I watched a program called “Robotics in Our Time” on TV. That program really amazed me and changed the duration of my life. After that day I started searching for information about robotics and learned a lot about it. As the result of those efforts, this year I took part in an International Competition “Infomatrix 2018”, which was held in Kazakhstan. That competition was about making short movies, programming, hardware control system and also included robotics. I was able to take 3rd place in this competition. After the series of these events, I have an opportunity to demonstrate my skills in robotics at the 2019 FIRST Global Challenge.
I’m studying at the school “Maktabi Irfon” in Khujand. I am a volunteer in the American corner of Khujand. I am interested in almost all areas, but most of all technology and innovation. I participated in the 2018 hackathon called “KhujandHacks” and took 4th place between 15 teams. From that moment I was more and more interested in innovation. In 2018, for the first time in Tajikistan, there was a worldwide project called “TechnovationChallenge Program”. I and my team worked with the platform named App Inventor and created applications called SDA, that it is mean self-development assistant. I am currently teaching coding for beginners in the American corner and I am glad that I have the opportunity to teach others what I myself know. Our goal is to participate in this project and win 1st place. We prove to everyone that Tajikistan will also be able to. I believe in our team.
Everybody in my family will be doctor but only I want to be an astrophysicist. Why? From childhood I always want to work in NASA. I begun my studies in private school “Nur”, but my passion for physics brought me into the Polytechnic Lyceum where I was able to meet the right teachers. Only in the Polythechnic Lyceum working the best teachers who can bring your ideas into life by means of teaching and inspiring us. I believe I achieve my goals set towards being an astrophysicist.
