It is very hard to imagine that in another 10 days, I will be leaving Backspace. But while parting, I am taking a bandwagon of memories - the way I learnt, worked, played, partied and above all grew personally and professionally will always be one the coveted assets of my life. I would be indebted to Backspace forever for an awesome teacher like PPD and many wonderful friends.
I was part of 3 programs at Backspace and I would briefly jot down the impact of each one of them:
PDP S03: I was on a mute mode before the start of PDP S03 and when the season ended, I was handling a B2B Sales role with the company I was working. I could take it up because the program taught me to open up, befriend unknown people and most importantly build relationships.
Verbospace S03: CAT 2013 Verbal Section - 50 percentile || CAT 2014 Verbal Section - 99 percentile. This is the extent of transformation that is possible under PPD's guidance in a span of just 6 months!
Breakspace S04: Since I had decent scores in all the exams that I took, I ended up with multiple calls. But it was equally difficult to prepare keeping in mind the requirements of each and every college and the program applied to. Thankfully, I had Partha to rescue me again. I also had my own share of peer learning from some of awesome participants of this programme.
I still possess the paper where PPD reviewed an essay on the very first day of this season and remarked that the season should end with an offer from a top-notch B-School. In case you want to meet a teacher who is inspirational rather than professional, you have to come to Backspace.
Thank you Backspace for shaping my life.
