This is the transformation success story of Goutam Senapati, who has successfully completed his skill training in F&B Steward from Don Bosco Tech Society in Bangalore. Most of the time, failure in personal or professional life leads to depression or compels for extreme step of any kind. Despite his economically weak background, Goutham overcame his struggle in every step of his life. He says, “"My mother is a house wife; and my father sells old clothes in weekly market. Since my parents used to go to work and come late in the evening, I attended my school in the afternoon till 6pm and had to study at night after completing the household chores. Both my elder sisters left their education due to our impoverished condition."

Goutham lives with his parents and two sisters in Sahapur area in Odisha. He completed the schooling from one of the local Govt schools and abled to secure 42% in his SSLC examination in 2017. To meet the educational expenses for higher study, he started to help his father for selling cloths during his free time. Recalling those days, Goutham says, "I know what failure is. I used to work till late night to support my educational expenses. Looking at my two sisters and my parents' life, I decided never to give up my studies and aim to get a good job based on skills.”

One fine day, he came to know about the free course and placement offer by Don Bosco Tech Society with financial support from Accenture. He came to know about the skill training from a priest who guided him to enrol in Don Bosco Tech. After interest inventory and counselling, the trainers suggested him to enrol in F&B Steward domain. Gautham says, “I could not adjust with the language and food in the beginning. But my trainers motivated me so that I decided to continue here. Don Bosco Tech gave me new life. After coming here, I learned communication skills, self-awareness, social skills, employability skills, computer skills and specially domain skills.”

After three months of training, he got an offer in a 4-star hotel named ‘Biere Club’ and started working in F & B Services with Rs.8000 per month. After two months, he got a hike of Rs 7000 and now his salary is Rs. 15000 per month. Regarding the training, he says, “I don’t know how to express my gratitude Don Bosco Tech. Now I can support my family and continue the study to actualise my dream. One should never give up their studies because of hardship. I feel that failure is only for a short period, but serves as a stepping stone to success."
