Shubham Singh made India proud by becoming one of the 19 youngsters from India who won a medal at the World Skills International Competition held in Kazan, Russia. Gurugram boy Shubham completed his schooling from DSVN Senior Secondary School and went on to study at Lovely Professional University.

It was in September 2018 that Shubham first learned of the World Skills Competition from a friend of his. The first level of the competition was called India Skills. The participation was through an online round where the students had to solve some problems. Shubham prepared for the competition in a one-month training place with Infosys at Chennai and Bangalore. Alongside the training, he had to polish his skills in areas such as cryptography and encryption.

The actual World Skills competitions lasted four days and ended with a closing ceremony, prize distribution and acknowledgments. Shubham was awarded the Medal of Excellence in Cyber Security at the reputed competition.
