From a Barber to a Community Service Officer!
Hailing from a small part of Jaipur called Jawaharnagar, Uma Shankar belongs to a humble family of seven. His father works as a barber in the local community & his mother contributes to the family’s income by working as a cook. He completed his Higher Secondary School (12th) and wanted to study further to get a degree. But since his family could barely make ends meet, continuing with higher education was not an option for him at all. He thus joined his father & started working as a barber. However, his dream for a better future for himself & his family never faded away. He eventually started a part-time typing course and soon got placed in a local shop as a typist. It wasn’t much, but it was something. One day, as his mother was visiting a friend’s house, she shared something interesting. She gave her Au Skills Academy’s pamphlet and informed her about the Banking Executive course under which underprivileged youth was being trained for the BFSI sector. She was particularly amazed and drawn in due to the course’s salient features. After getting to know about the course, Uma Shankar didn’t waste any time and enrolled himself in the academy, making a promise to himself to make gold of this opportunity. Initially, he found it hard to communicate with his peers especially in front of the whole batch during the interactive sessions. But he kept the promise he made to himself & kept working on his personal development. With unwavering help & support from the trainers, he eventually overcame all his fears and short comings.
Uma Shankar, a 12th pass out, desired to have a better life for himself. At AU Skills Academy, he worked upon his interpersonal and vocational skills. An under confident man, came out well groomed and confident, after his training with us.
