“Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.” – Pete Carroll
Enrolling in TechSaksham Program: Sanskriti’s interest areas like Python branched out into different paths and gave a vast range of options. When she was wondering what her career milestones should be, she came across the TechSaksham program and enrolled in it.
TechSaksham Journey: After a few months into the program, she shared, “It was the best thing to happen to me at such a time, as I needed guidance on how to learn and implement. My mentor, Ms. Bharti Verma, was always there to provide clarity and in-depth knowledge. Ma’am constantly proved to be a support system and boosted my confidence. Capstone project work and working with data-sets particularly led me in a constructive direction. I’ll definitely recommend this program to my peers.”
Capstone project: Sanskriti got inspired by her older sister who is a physiotherapist; her sister used to share research papers and guide her on the need of interventions in the health sector specifically regarding mental health. Around the same time Sanskriti noticed her acquaintances needing to take their toddlers for expensive speech therapies and people in her circle finding it challenging to interact in interviews or socially. It was then that Sanskriti decided to make her capstone project on Spoken Language Disorders (SLDs), articulation, and the issue of stammering. The idea of the project is to help the beneficiaries in improving communication skills, building speech muscles via special exercises, enabling intelligible speech upon interpretation of what a child is saying, and connecting with children using interactive activities, all for free. Currently the language used for the project offerings is English with a future plan to add other languages too.
