Seizing the Day
“Never give up, if you have the time and energy, then explore and create.”
Trained at SMART Academy for Digital Technologies, Hyderabad
Sometimes, life gives us a second chance, maybe because the first time was not good enough. Speaking of second chances and opportunities, when Pallavi got her second job offer, she was ready for it and accepted it without hesitation.
Gogavarapu Pallavi comes from a humble background, her mother is a homemaker and her father is a priest. While growing up in the city of Hyderabad, Pallavi always aspired to be a graphic designer. One day, while surfing through social media, she came to know about Tech Mahindra SMART Academies for Digital Technologies. Without wasting any time, she connected with the Academy team in Hyderabad to know more about the courses. In June 2020, Pallavi joined the Certificate in Graphic Design course at Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Digital Technologies in Hyderabad.
Speaking of her enrolment into the course during the lockdown period, she says, “I thought that it is going to be tough but we are responsible for ourselves. I took this period positively, and I thought that it is a good time to learn something new, something which I always wanted to become.” Soon after completing the course, she got an offer from Outright Creators in March 2021, despite the global pandemic and economic recession. The package was low but she wanted to go for it and not waste the opportunity. After a month, Pallavi got her second offer from Bizgaze Limited with a much higher package and without any hesitation, she joined her new company.
Today, she is an independent woman and a skilled Graphic Designer. She says, “I am happy that I can support my family.” She also expresses gratitude to the trainers at the Academy who prepared her well and transformed her into a confident and responsible woman.
