Raja’s interaction with trainer Vaibhav was his first tryst with Antarang. When he learnt about our activities, Raja realised that this was the perfect opportunity for him to transform himself. During his time at Antarang, Raja was amazed by the positive impression the Foundation made in the lives of its many students. Raja found the opportunity to interact with people from different communities an eye opening experience. He mentioned that this altered his views and perceptions of the world. Raja firmly believes that his training sessions at Antarang played a crucial role in developing his personality, which instilled in him confidence to expand his social circle.
At the moment, Raja is working with Starbucks on a part-time assignment and is engaged in academic pursuits as well. Raja is all praise for the Career Ready program, and attributes his present success to his trainer Nardev. According to Raja, Nardev’s casual and friendly demeanour allowed students to freely associate with him and ask questions without hesitation. Though he enjoys his current job, Raja admits his passion lies in editing and that one day hopes to have a successful career in editing and film making.
In order to better the current system of training, Raja opines that Antarang must focus its facilities on the existing batch of students as opposed to inviting new students for admission. He believes that any effort in this regard will further the ideals of the foundation.
