Salina Marandi, GWDD, 2nd SEM, ARENA ANIMATION, PARK STREET
Hello everyone, I am Salina Marandi, a student of Arena Animation, Park Street. It’s been two months since I started a new journey as a student of GWDD (Graphics, Web Design & Development) 2nd Sem. And I am writing my first blog to share my experience till now with you all.
In July 2017, I became the part of Arena Animation, Park Street. I joined GWDD course with a firm motive to make my dreams come true, to be independent. The 1st semester classes were very fine and I was happy to receive the classes given to us. Our faculty taught us the software with proper guidance and solved our queries with care and patience. But now I have realized that just by attending classes, learning the software tools, being a self-centered person will not be enough to achieve what I ever wanted to.
And this realization came when a new chapter was unfoldedin my life. One fine day on 2nd June 2018, I came to my 1stSemester class, after few minutes our faculty told us,
“Time to go to 3rd floor, Pinocchio Lab”.
All of a sudden we started preparing ourselves for the introductory meeting, wearing ID card, turning mobile to silent mode, wishing each other good luck. As we all knew, we will be meeting the famous person known for discipline and regularity in Arena Animation, Park Street , Somnath Sir.
My first introduction with Sir was very “ darise hmisi” .And why not?Meeting the ‘SINGHAM’ of Arena Animation, Park Street for the first time.Additionally heard so many-rumors about him. I was as meek as a lamb. But towards the end of the meeting I was confirmed that to be a part of this lab and to achieve success, hard work and proper planning is very essential.
Our three days orientation taken by our mentor was genuinely an enlightening experience. I built self-confidence within me. Those days were the self-evaluation days, very much needed before proceeding in this course.Again giving me a realization that it’s I who can build my future and destroy my future too.
Our seniors have always been an inspiration to us with their team unity, confidence and straightforwardness towards their dream job.
The after class group discussion with the seniors and with my team members have turned out to be a fruitful one. Spending quality time with my team members, learning team coordination, helping each other in need was never a part of me but now it holds a great importance in my life.
The last two months have honestly brought a lot of change in me. It has taught me to be patience with my work, proper planning, time management, research, carry positive attitude everywhere and to be happy with the work that we do. I remember our mentor stated in one of the orientation days that,
“Aaj se 8 mahino baad tum apne aapko dekhkar yakin nahi kar paoge ki tum pehle kyathe or ab kya ho.”
I belief this whole statement, when there is a change in me within 2 months, then I am ready for more changes in me in the upcoming 6 months.
My life in Pinocchio Lab is going well and it will go well too. As the negative blockage from my mind and heart is slowly fading away. My dreams are visible now. And my motive has been inspired and motivated again to take real actions.
Thank you everyone, that’s all I have to write. And soon I will be back again in my next blog with interesting and exciting topics. Till then be positive and spread positivity Goodbye!
