12ad9d8d3d84d269b4f4fc60a49d9c65-953_340x180Remya Jose hails from Kizhattoor Panchayat in Malappuram district, Kerala. Her father is a high school teacher and her mother is the headmistress of an Upper primary school. She is 16 years old and has completed her 12th standard in the science group. Throughout her school years, a class topper, Remya scored above 90% in her board exams, this in spite of having to do the laundry. She represented her school at various science fairs and won prizes for making a still model of a transmission tower for mobile phones and for a working model of an indigenous casserole which conserves heat, thus also functioning as a thermal cooker. For her 12th standard practical examinations, she made a model of a refrigerator in which vegetables, fruits etc. would remain fresh up to a week

Miss Jose made this washing machine, after her board exams, when she was 14 years old. Her dream is to become a doctor and to do research in medicine. Hence, anything else cannot distract her. She is enrolled for coaching classes at a prestigious coaching centre in Thrissur – two and a half hours from home. She is staying away from home for the first time. “Whatever you have in mind, try it. Don’t worry about making mistakes, they can surely be corrected.”
