“It wasn’t easy but it was fun. The team at ATMA was proactively helpful and it was their support and guidance that made my integration into the work force so seamless. There was a sense of fulfillment, that in a small way I had made a contribution to the betterment of society. The effective deployment of social media is the best way to help these organizations to connect with the public and gain recognition for their work. At a personal level, the program taught me to be patient and to work consistently hard and the result would follow.”
Dhwani Solanki pursued B.Sc. in Animation and a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Design at the Welingkar Institute of Management and Research.
The YES FOUNDATION training program, which was demanding, was also very rewarding for her and equipped Dhwani with first hand learning from the gurus of the media industry.
Dhwani was assigned to ATMA – Accelerator for Education and its associated organisations – Anandi, Sai Sweekar, Spark A Change Foundation, and Maharashtra Dyslexia Association. Drawing on her academic knowledge and the inputs from the YES FOUNDATION training program, Dhwani made a mark for herself by designing logos for Anandi and Maharashtra Dyslexia Asociation. She was also instrumental in designing style guides for Anandi and Spark A Change Foundation and contributed to content creation for the internal brochure for ATMA.
The Fellowship facilitated Dhwani’s learning about how to translate classroom theories to real life situations, the value of team work, team spirit, the pooling of ideas and the virtue of patience on the road to success.
