I joined Westford as a clueless teenager, I did not know what I wanted to do, just like many others. At Westford, the whole education system is designed to equip us with theoretical and practical knowledge and soft skills. Interactive classes, various events and clubs like WeConnect and Toastmasters helped me discover my hidden talents and potentials. I recently won the Toastmasters Division I Contest, which is one of my greatest achievement so far. I have improved a lot over the past year at Westford and have a better vision of my career.
