Ever since Shilpa came to Diya, she has exceeded all expectations and outdone herself from being a proofreader at Studio C Cubed to being the Office Assistant at Diya Foundation.
She has successfully completed an eighteen-month-long multimedia program while also proficiently proofreading. Apart from this, she also has experience with official duties which include computer-related tasks like scanning documents, sending documents through email, and maintaining databases in excel, which have collectively helped her land her current job. During the onboarding, she presented a self-advocacy kit that explained how people could help and support her better while also sensitizing and educating her co-workers.
With the help of the training conducted by Diya on personal grooming, self-care, and assisted living, she has learned to become an independent person, capable of looking after herself. She has perfected planning her purchases and can prepare food like chapati, puri, tea, and mouth-watering maggie noodles for herself. She can also make delicious snacks like avalakki for a large crowd of people!
Apart from cooking, she has explored various other activities as well. She is quite fond of practicing yoga every day and going for walks around her colony. Shilpa makes sure she always participates in the yearly marathons. She also enjoys spending quality time with her friends. They engage in fun activities like playing carrom, watching movies, or solving puzzles from time to time.
She makes it a point to participate in events like Quizzabled which helps her improve her general knowledge. Aside from this, she takes part in paper recycling workshops that develop her artistic and creative skills. Her parents have also played an incredibly important role in shaping the person she has become. She has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is and we couldn't be more proud!
