My Sucess Story – Job Offer as Radio Jockey in USA shared by Kiranmayee

Dear HSB,

Its nearly been an year I have been following your posts and you simply rock. Today, I would like to share my experience on success with you.

I have completed my schooling living abroad as an NRI and was quite average with my academics. From an early age, I was really interested in many extracurricular activities and was active in sports, singing, etc.

I have failed in Mathematics during my CBSE Board Exam in 12th. But in my compartment, I managed to pass through. I got a seat in (Bio-technology), (I was brilliant in life-sciences but didn’t fare well in math and physics) and completed my graduation as Best Achiever in Academics by XXX University.

After completion, being a girl, I was not allowed to work by staying alone in India, so I decided to forgo my career and join my family. For about an year, I worked as a Radio Jockey in the Radio which I got due to my singing talent.

With the money I earned, I have used it to write my GRE, TOEFL and even for the application process. In the whole process, I made a major mistake of choosing the wrong universities for my profile and ended up getting all rejects.

Later, I got a job in India with xxx Company and I succeeded in pleading my parents to send me there. After working for two months, my mother faced a critical health problem and I had resigned my job to take care of her.

Today, I have an offer from a Radio channel in USA to associate with them as a Radio Jockey.

I have accepted their offer and I am planning to apply for Fall 2012 to continue my studies.

Fate plays its role in every way to make you stumble on every step but it depends on you as to how fast you get back onto your feet and in what fashion.

I understand there are millions of other students around me with still major problems but I just felt like sharing my agony and feelings with you all.


Congrats Kiranmayee on your successful offer. See, if you do what you love, you can be success in life. My best wishes for your bright future.

I would appreciate if all others to share small success stories like this. It doesn’t have to be long. Few lines of problems you had to overcome.
