Soma Maji, 24 yo, Star, RIDE team,
Life Project Center Hossenpur, Kolkata, India
My name is Soma Maji, I am 24 years old. I live in China Temple in Kolkata and I have two members in my family : me and my husband.
I joined LP4Y in September 2018 when I was 23 years old and I finished in February 2020. I was sick in the middle of the program that’s why I took more time to finish it.
I heard about LP4Y from my sister. She convinced me to try the program. She told me they can help me to find a decent job and it was very important for me in order to be independent. I started the LP4Y program being on the RIDE team and I worked in marketing department.
Few time after joining LP4Y, I have changed myself. I learned to speak English and how to use a computer. I also gained confidence. For example, I had to go to schools to present RIDE and explain road safety gestures in front of children. I was very proud of me !
My dream job is to work in a bank but I didn’t finish school so I know it will be hard. In February 2020, I found my new job in Interdominion Dental Services as doctor assistant. With this job, I will earn and save some money for me and family.
In future I have to work hard and in LP4Y I learned that everything is possible in our life if we try the best. I want to say I am very lucky to be part of LP4Y program and get support, trainings, guidance. Thank you for your help to reach my potential and my dream....
I was so lucky to have coaches, Alexis, Charlotte, Justine, Elisabeth, who inspired me every day to be better than the day before. I hope I can inspire future champions as you have inspired me all these years !
