With a grateful heart Lolita Dsouza, one of the students shared her experience of learning. The academy is doing something very commendable for society, skilling youth is a very noble job. I wish that the academy continues to provide a helping hand for society, were some of her points of sharing. 

CA Valerian Dalmeida in his presidential address rightly identified the seven students who had been there to receive their certificates, with the seven colours of the rainbow. He said, like the rainbow which wouldn’t be complete even if one colour is absent,  I request you to go out as each colour of the rainbow and be the ambassadors of our academy. Let the youth be inspired by you. He also expressed his vision that the maximum youth of the country should get employment, particularly the Karnataka rural youth, which is the key reason behind pioneering the Academy. 

The programme witnessed a fitting conclusion with the vote of thanks by Navya Shetty, HR Newskarnataka, which was followed by a group photo session.
