After finishing 12th standard, I was just at home not doing much. One of the ladies from the project came to my house one day and gave me information about the computer course. My parents allowed me to do it – I was really happy, because it had been my dream to learn how to use computers.
It wasn’t just learning how to use a computer – I also learnt about communication, nutrition, how to prevent anemia and other important things like these.
At the moment I’m working in an ice-cream parlour. I can really feel how important the computer course was for me, as I use these skills in my job a lot.
