“I was motivated by the story of astronaut Kalpana Chawla. I wanted to see how the rocket gets launched from my childhood and that kept me going" - This childhood dream of an Assam girl became true when she stepped into ISRO as a Grade-I Scientist. The small district of Nagaon in Assam came to shine in the world map when the daughter of school teacher Abul Kalam Azad and Manjila Begum, Naznin Yasmin was selected as a junior scientist in the Indian Space Research organization. 


After completing her graduation in Electronics engineering from NITS Mirza College, Yasmin went on to pursue her M.Tech from Tezpur University. The next thing she did was to take the help of her scientist friend and Google to know more about becoming a rocket scientist. After clearing the written test for selection to ISRO in 2019, she was called for an interview at the North East Space Application Centre at Shillong on August 11, 2021. Yasmin will adorn her dream role as a scientist at the ISRO headquarters in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh before December 30.
