It feels great to see the enthusiasm of a young mind, that carves her dreams to realities. One such story I found a few days back was that of Ximena Prugue.

Her thoughts speak how anything you dream can be converted to a reality – it just needs deeper passion and a solid vision. She felt how one can chart a way to alleviate energy poverty in a country like India. Though few years old, I think it’s worth viewing and understanding the perspective of an engineer.


She graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. She was the founder and President of Giving the Green Light, a non-profit organisation that works towards alleviating energy poverty in rural India with renewable energy. Her interests include design, solar energy, and social engineering. Ximena is currently an associate mechanical engineer at BRG Sports.

I really appreciate Ximena Prugue for her commendable action driven thoughts and execution she did. I am sure such efforts will set very right examples for the future generations.
