Varshita Bedi: Cybersecurity Course
True Life Is Lived When Tiny Changes Occur – Leo Tolstoy
Small changes, one step at a time, make a mammoth difference in the long run. When Varshita had joined Computer Science & Engineering course at IMS Engineering College, Ghaziabad, she felt a sense of accomplishment for being the first engineer in her family. When she attended the webinar of Cybershikshaa (offered by Tata STRIVE and Microsoft) during her 7th semester, she was unaware of even the concept of Cybersecurity and had no idea what a sea change awaited her.
A spark was ignited before she knew it, she perused Tata STRIVE offering and joined the course, “I did not know much about cybersecurity but the webinar made me curious. I started learning more about it and fell in love instantly. When I joined the course, I realized that this was the only arena where I want to spend the rest of my life. Our training was excellent as we learnt the practical aspects of the subject with lectures, tutorials, videos. We had best mentors to guide and motivate us. We were free to ask as many questions as we wanted and most importantly, STRIVE personality development module was a big help in making us more confident, more prepared to deal with different situations in life,” she happily recounts.
Right after finishing the course, Varshita got placed in O9 Solutions at Bengaluru and is living the happiest version of her life. She wishes to become an expert at cybersecurity and related topics, get promoted, move on to better positions, bigger salary packages and wake up everyday excited to go to work for the rest of her life.
