When I was in my mid-teens, many people asked me about my experiences of my life. I would easily reply that I don’t have any life learning experiences yet. But it all started the moment I stepped into KCLAS started experiencing some of the breathtaking ones. KCLAS has allowed me to sharpen my knowledge and skills and to prove myself. I am thankful for my school for this.
It was an honour to be a part of the first batch of B.Com at KCLAS. The first thing I would like to mention is about the first week during “TAG”, I came to know about diverse people and started interacting with them many were narrow-minded some were like-minded people. I was able to exhibit myself within a week. Once the classes started I started enjoying the company of my people and also learned from them. The staffs require a special mention here. They were more like a best friend to me. My first year went just like that by spending time with friends. There were times I felt low because I started facing domination and other negative acts which naturally happens among all students, but still, I thank those people, it was because of them I got the thought of achieving more and proving myself. Gradually I started opening up myself and voice out my opinions and needs without feeling bashful.
The actual adventure started in my second year. Apart from my B.Com subjects I started doing other jobs and went to other colleges and gained exposure. I attended many guest talk series and I became a club coordinator which further made me stronger and gave me confidence. Now I can proudly say that I’m a part of the EVOLVE web series. My seniors were my next teachers. One of my seniors guided me to do my best in all the activities and he told me that I’m 60% possessed with all the abilities and I should get done with just 40% more. Well, that I feel contented. Then people started calling me a plucky girl. Trust me guys, if you join KCLAS you’ll get attracted to some of my experiences and it will appeal to your imagination. The various Clubs, Guest talks, Industrial visits, Namadhu Pangu, Student leadership councils are a great platform to showcase your talents and is also sunlight which helps your plant to grow into a big tree.
Key takeaways from KCLAS:
- I was able to re-invent myself and show who I am.
- Teamwork and collaboration through clubs.
- Leadership and professionalism.
- Career management through career booster classes.
- Communication skills by interacting with diverse people.
“Life is not a bed of roses”. You’ll have to toil a lot to establish yourself. Likewise, there will be a lot of opportunities in your college it’s upon you to drive your car straight without turning right and left (distractions). I would like to end up my blog by saying that to join KCLAS to experience a distinct kind of learning and prominent exposure to show who you are. Kudos to KCLAS for bringing up all of us to such an eminent position with a great gusto because KCLAS is “WHERE YOU WANT TO BE“. These experiences are truly irreplaceable and I would not trade them with anything else. If I could go back and if someone asks me “what has been your best experience?”, the mid-teen version of me certainly would have been surprised by what my answer is now.
