Virtual Alumni Reunion At DPSG International
Millions of memories, Thousands of jokes, Hundreds of secrets, One reason.. DPSG International
DPSG International organized its first Virtual Alumni Meet on 8 October 2021 under the mentorship of Principal Ms. Meera Mathur who lovingly welcomed the guests. Over 50 Alumni participated in the meet and rekindled their memories of bygone days.
Famed TV actress Ms. Mrinalini Tyagi, a DPSG alumnus and the chief guest nostalgically recalled her school days and the important role they played in shaping her personality. Alumni Mallika Khurana and Md. Hanan also walked down memory lane fondly. The guests also enjoyed a skit and a dance and enthusiastically participated in a School Trivia quiz organized by the Alumni Cell. The vote of thanks was proposed by the Head Mistress Ms. Soma Singh.
My life has been a roller coaster ride to where I am now in a leadership position, but what has stayed constant is my drive and attitude throughout. It all started with a few minor assignments, presentations, and a single inquiry: "Does it make you happy?" That simple question made me realize my passion for marketing and fascination with how firms operate. It was then, during my second year at Delhi University, that I realized how interesting the world of marketing was for me, and it motivated me to work hard and diligently towards getting into an MBA college and taking the next step.
All of the suffering and joy during my two years at FORE paid off when I was given the opportunity to enter my dream world of pursuing my passion by being chosen for a position at Moolchand Healthcare. It holds all the anxieties and cheers that helped me seek patience and compassion in life, from the time I was passionately playing basketball at school to being the first batch's School Topper. I'll be eternally grateful to all of my school mentors who encouraged me to aspire high and accomplish high at every turn. Consider how much time you spent in those classrooms, on those grounds, and how much fun you had. My motto and the only advice is to ‘NEVER REGRET’ Every next level of your life will require a next level you.

SHORT-TERM GOALS IS MY NEW NORMAL
“What are your long term goals?” – Someone asked me.
In these initial stages of my work life, I often stumble across this question and ask myself ‘Is this normal? Is it okay to not being able to find a long-term goal right in the beginning of your career?
My life today has been a series of short-term decisions I took over the years. And if anybody asks me did it work for me well? It absolutely did!
My motto in life is to believe in what I am doing and doing it in the best possible way. It is your interest that matters. My business studies faculty in class XI pushed me for a Finance related project, and it was at that point I realized how fascinated I am with this topic. This interest allowed me to pursue Economics for my graduation. Only after the completion of my 3rd year, I realized that I wanted more and decided to do MBA, I prepared in those 6 months and took admission at XIMB. My perseverance in those 2yrs of MBA paid off as I got selected at MSCI as a Product Specialist. The corporate life is a brand new experience for me, and I am enjoying every bit of it. It has its own challenges and difficulties, but when you truly make your mind about something and work hard towards it, you will always finish it in style!
You don’t have to pressurize yourself thinking what your life will look like 5yrs or 10yrs down the lane. You have to keep following what you think is best for you and these goals will automatically fall in that track. Grab every opportunity that comes your way, even if it means altering your plans more often than you expected.
The world is constantly changing around you.
So yes, this is my new normal! These short term goals will help me build a successful and happy life for myself.
