I started my journey when I was in2nd year of my college. It was a pleasant day in college when an announcement struck my ears. I with my friends headed towards the direction of an announcement. It was Mr. Sameer sir who was announcing. It was an announcement for India skills. Unaware about India skills I started researching for the same. This was then I decided to participate for “Print Media Technology” competition.
I had my training at Advance Graphics and Zawre creatives under Mr. Sameer Prabhune, who was also my expert for world skill Kazan. With his guidance, training and constant I was able to give my best. He was the one who trained me to become best I can.
I participated from Pune for district level. After winning at that competition I went for Regional selection round at Bangalore and it was after that I won Gold at India Skills Nationals.
Sahil, who won silver at India Skills National with whom I was trained with also, helped me improve my work. I had to again undergo 3 selection tests with Sahil after winning Gold at Nationals. For the first selection test Sahil was in lead by 0.25 points. I was much tensed after this selection test I almost lost faith in myself. It was my family and friends who stood upto me and built my courage. And then after this I was in lead for 2nd as well as 3rd selection test.
After that I was given an opportunity to participate at Finnish Nation Skills Taitaja’19, Finland as a guest competitor where I was 1st runnerup. Winning silver at Finland boosted my confidence because till then I thought I wasn’t good enough compared to rest of participants there. It was then I decided to never look back again.
After this I was sent to Germany for training at Heidelberg. In this training I was able to learn many new things that which I was lacking in here. Digital machine Versafire and few of the offset parts were some of the things I was unaware about. I did online studies for this after my training.
In Kazan, while I was at my work station while I was working on my modules I faced many challenges that I can’t even anticipate. But I work.
