Bootcamp is more than just a training academy. Every weekend, mentors at Bootcamp conduct interactive sessions with the students. These sessions are conducted on various topics, like personality development, career guidance, workplace ethics and so on.
Last weekend, the interactive session was conducted by Caroline (Head of Business Development, Nordic Intent). She started the session by showing the students a video by Sundar Pichai.
She then gave a brief overview about her career journey – How she focused on her passion, how she overcame various hurdles in her career life, how she motivated herself, how she kept looking towards achieving the things she was most passionate about and so on.
After this, she posed 2 questions to all the students, the questions got them thinking really hard –
- What is your passion?
- Who inspired you the most?
All were asked to write down their answers on a piece of paper. Caroline says it was great to see some students quickly penning down the answers while some took back a minute or two to think about it!
Once they were ready, each one was asked to read it out loud. And guess what!
The answers were amazing! It showed how passionate all the students are and also how they observe people and draw inspiration from them. All these notes were then posted on the whiteboard.
Here are a few answers the students wrote down –
- My Inspiration – Elon Musk and Marques Brownlee
My Passion – Still on the search for my passion
~ Stephy George
- My Inspiration – My Dad
My Passion – To restore and redesign old houses and to learn more about historical India and the world
~ Malcolm Madeira
- My Inspiration – My Mom
My Passion – To do what I really love the most
~ Siddhi Kamat
Caroline ended the session by emphasizing on how each one should follow their passion – no matter what. She also highlighted the fact that many parents focus on educating their child only in certain areas or only for a fact that they need to achieve a certain degree. But there’s more to it, if one has a particular interest in some other field, they should go ahead, pursue it. Learning is never ending phase, is what she had to say.
The entire session motivated the students to follow their dreams and their passion.
We are really proud of the students at Bootcamp. Currently, our batch is a mix of students attending various courses – Digital Marketing Course, Graphic Design Course, WordPress Development and others. We wish them all the best in all their future endeavors.
