Over my journey in NMIMS, as I chanced upon the pictures of the most coveted event in pharma; ‘The pharma awards’, I was starry-eyed and dreamt of being awarded with a medal. As I held my Gold medal on the 9th March; I realised that dreams do come true if you power them with hard work and determination!
That afternoon when I was scrolling through my mail, I received a notification from the Chairperson of NMIMS. The subject of the white and red envelope said – Congratulations! I all of a sudden opened my mail and it transformed my typical day into an extraordinary one. I was one of the Awardees for the ’11th Industry Awards’ ceremony planned for the afternoon of 9th March 2019.
The following mail that I received, was from the Cultural Head of the college and he approached me for my Success Mantra along with a gratitude statement. I thought for a while to deliver my response in order to put across all my hard work and dedication into two simple sentences. This award is the dream come true and obviously a motivating spirit for all my future activities. I have been persistent and chased my dream overcoming all the hurdles that came my way. By getting such physical rewards one move with more dedication and focused intentions to get the dreams into reality and prosperity in all the endeavors. In that space provided, I typed my inner voice that said ‘Dedication and Creativity backed up by sheer passion’ ….
The next statement that the form demanded from me was the Gratitude Statement. To sum up my gratitude statement. So I took this as an opportunity and thanked everyone who is a part of my journey and will stand by me always.
The faculty members have not only educated me, but also taught the lesson of life and prepared me for the world outside. Many major lessons of life beyond the defined syllabus and scripted books are taught by them only. My seniors have also played a vital role in my development by being my guide and showing me the right direction and path to walk on.
On the day of the ceremony, the most amazing thing of my life was to see my parents in the hall and that itself stood as my strength. I have been awarded the best outgoing student twice, GPAT 2018 qualified and certified in my college competitions that include singing, dancing, elocution, drawing, skits, model making and presentations too. Moreover, this day was special because this was the first time I was awarded in their presence. Their eyes showed they were proud of me and honestly, that was my AWARD! I thanked them for their trust and confidence in me that has brought me here. God has always been the one that enables me to progress, and what I feel is that the entire surrounding of mine from my parents to friends to colleagues to teammates, everybody is blessed through God. I witnessed my efforts backed by their blessings & support, transforming into an excellent thing.
As I have always gravitated towards overall personality development, this is another mile achieved. By having this award on my shelf, I am surely motivated to do my best as I consider this as a token of my past efforts and also a push factor for my future endeavors.
Thank you to each and everyone for your graceful presence during the entire tenure for my success. I look forward for your support in my journey ahead.
