Pooja Pal


Nursing Orderly at Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialist Hospital

“To be a Hero all you need to do is believe in yourself”

She is the textbook definition of the word “Hero”. By the age of 24, she has surpassed her family’s expectation and doesn’t intend to stop any time soon. Having completed her two-year Emergency Medical Technician Diploma Course at the SMART Academy, she is currently working at Rajiv Gandhi Hospital, Delhi as Nursing Orderly.

Modest and humble, Pooja confesses, “The only thing I was missing in my life was proper guidance. And this is where SMART Academy really helped me. The counsellors and mentors helped me to identify my strengths and skills in the first place.”

She aspires to pursue an advanced course on EMT soon. Looking back at the time when she lacked confidence, she says, “To be a Hero all you need to do is believe in yourself. There is nothing we can’t do if we put our whole heart into it. And at the SMART Academy, they made me believe that #MainBhiHero.”

 

AARZOO


 Dialysis Technician, Cosmo Hospital, Mohali

Aarzoo comes from an economically challenged background. Despite being financially unstable, Aarzoo’s father chose to support her decision of pursuing further studies. 

Her zeal and commitment to studies were so high that her struggle to commute daily of about 50 km from her residence in Pinjore, Haryana to the SMART Academy for Healthcare in Mohali became an inspiration for other students. Considering this, the Academy offered her a scholarship. 

Initially a docile and an introvert, she transformed into a confident and outgoing girl. Today, Aarzoo is working with Cosmo Hospital, Mohali as a Dialysis Technician.

“I gifted my husband with an X-ray Technician course at the very same SMART Academy”

Manpreet Kaur heard about SMART Academy for the first time at Gurudwara. She recalls, “It was announced in Gurudwara where they wanted the youth to pay a visit to the Academy in Mohali. I felt as if God himself has answered my prayers. And the very first visit to the institute felt like it was a blessing from above.”

Manpreet Kaur lost her father when she was in 8th standard and to carry the burden of responsibilities, she had to discontinue her schooling after 10th. She spent 4 years at the dispensary, gathering valuable first-hand experience and providing financial assistance to the family.

JASPREET


Hospital Front Office & Billing Executive, Moolchand Hospital

Nineteen-year-old vivacious Jaspreet has not let her difficult life get her down. One of a family of four, she was studying in grade eleven in a government secondary school, Adarsh Nagar when her father (who owns a TV repair shop) met with an accident and suffered a spinal injury that left him bedridden. The family found itself faced with an extended sickness and hospitalisation in a major hospital. “Surgery cost… huge… We are financially backward and my brother earns Rs 17,000… Family is first..” says an ever-smiling Jaspreet. Jaspreet’s self-confidence and fluency in English helped her ace two intense interviews taken by Moolchand Hospital. She is the very first student from our first ever Hospital Front Office & Billing Executive batch from the SMART Academy, Delhi to be recruited.

SHIVAM KUMAR


Hospital Front Office & Billing Executive, Paras Hospital

“You need to guide your abilities to converge them and carve a HERO out of it”

Growing up in a defence family, Shivam from his childhood made it a point to serve the nation and the people. From a YouTuber to an Allied Healthcare Professional, he has seen and done it all.

Having completed his B.Com from Jammu University, he wasted no time in securing his first job in a marketing firm. Later through a newspaper advertisement, he came to know about Tech Mahindra’s SMART Academy for Healthcare. Here, Shivam saw a glimmer of hope in his quest to add value to society. He is currently working as the Hospital Front Office and Billing Executive at Paras Hospital, Haryana.

Shivam says, “At the Academy, the trainers helped me to guide my abilities, converge them and carve a HERO out of it.”

SARFARAZ


General Duty Assistant, Sir Gangaram Hospital

Sarfaraz comes from a large family of 12. Neither of his parents work due to their age and illnesses. His two elder brothers have been a rock of support, not just for him, but for their seven other siblings too. Sarfaraz was recruited by one of Delhi’s top hospitals – Sir Gangaram Hospital and is on its payroll now. For this young man, completing the General Duty Assistant’s course means much more than another step in life. It is the gateway to the stability and happiness of his family.

RAKHI


General Duty Assistant, Medicover IVF hospital

Rakhi never thought that her first job will land her at Medical Fertility Centre with a handsome salary amount. She is now working as a General Duty Assistant in Medicover IVF Hospital. Her father is an electrician and earns just enough to support her family. “I always wanted to join the medical field. Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare gave me that opportunity. Here teachers are like your friends and the labs, infrastructure and all other facilities are just excellent. No where in the city you will be able to find this kind of atmosphere”, says a very cheerful Rakhi.

PUSHPINDER SINGH


Hospital Front Office & Billing Executive at Moolchand Hospital

By the age of 26, Pushpinder Singh had tried a variety of jobs – he’d worked in a call centre and a recovery agent for a bank. He even did a course in air-ticketing but didn’t find work anywhere. “When my business ran into a loss, I was unhappy and looking for something fulfilling to do,” says Pushpinder. “When I heard about the Academy through a mobiliser, it got me thinking about working in the healthcare sector. I’ve always wanted to do something to help people, I think the biggest advantage at the Academy is the teachers’ attitude towards students, anyone can easily approach them and ask for help,” says a proud Pushpinder who now works at Moolchand Hospital, New Delhi.
