On July 10, 2018, Ms Rupa Saha, Director, Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management (SAFIM) conducted an introductory workshop on ‘Self-Development’ for the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and International English Language Testing System (IELTS) aspirants enrolled for coaching and mentorship with Manya – The Princeton Review, at their Adyar centre in Chennai. Around 35 students gathered to reflect upon their personal aspirations and the different resources they have around them and within themselves to work towards realizing their vision.
Manya Education Private Limited (MEPL) provides the services in test preparation and admissions counselling to the Indian students who wish to study abroad. Under the flagship of The Princeton Review, MEPL provides test preparation for standardized foreign for students who wish to study abroad, for examinations such as GMAT, GRE, SAT, IELTS, TOEFL, etc.
The 2-hour session started with an interesting format of self-introduction where each of the young participants tried defining themselves beyond their general demographic details. Through interactions and a couple of self-exploratory activities the participants tried to define their goals and the challenges and opportunities that they anticipate in their journey towards their goals. Subsequently they were taken to the realm of their individual selves where challenges and opportunities seemed interchangeable, depending on their inner attitude.
