Khushi, our #alumni, was a regular high school student. What made her stand out others was her quest for #appliedknowledge. As someone who rarely received answers to her questions, Khushi, was thrilled when she first walked into the electrical lab in school. Here she witnessed theories being applied in real time. She knew she had discovered a subject where she would gain a lot from.
While Khushi was pleased with her decision to study electrical, her family was not. #Vocationalsubjects are a less-trodden path. A course in electrical isn't exactly a popular choice among parents, particularly for girls. It was a choice that raised eyebrows, invited skepticism.
Khushi, however, made the conscious decision to follow her intuition and studied #electrical with utmost dedication. When she got to know about #internships, she knew it would be her chance to delve into the world of electrical gadgets. Khushi had gained an understanding of circuits and wiring during her course. It was at her workplace that she first heard about software. While she loved working with hardware, she was intrigued to learn more about software. “What is software development?”, “How to program a software?” – Khushi started asking these questions to her #vocationaltrainer.
Seeing her interest and dedication, Khushi's vocational training teacher introduced her to one-year program on software development at #NavGurukul. The pathways team at @lendahandindia supported and provided guidance during the admission process. Multiple tests and interviews later, Khushi got admitted to #NavGurukul. And so, armed with confidence and a support system that believed in her, Khushi has embarked on a path that would forever shape her future.
Khushi says,”Just like I traced the path of an electrical current to identify and fix issues, I apply a similar mindset in debugging and troubleshooting code.”
With her eyes fixed on the horizon, Khushi knows that her future has never been brighter and more hopeful. In a world where conventional paths usually dictate the course of one's life choices, Khushi is a beacon of inspiration and resilience.
