Are you someone who dwells whole-heartedly in words? If yes, then we’ve got a story to share with you! 

Read through the story of a 2nd year student, Ritika Mehra, who expresses her love for words and poems in a personal blog run by her. Read ahead to know how she was able to achieve her dream of dwelling in words after taking up the Journalism Workshop with MyCaptain

Ritika Mehra

I have always been keen on weaving words together to create stories and poems. Observing things around me and describing them in way that everyone would want to read about it, is something I have always wanted to do. Storytelling is an art on its own and it takes a lot of tries to get it right.


Introduction To MyCaptain

Scrolling through Instagram led me to one of the best decisions of my life, as I came across MyCaptain ad. One thing led to another and the next thing I knew, I was already researching about the wide number of workshops offered by MyCaptain. 

For someone like me, coming across MyCaptain was a big help. Having a platform which gives you an opportunity to explore your passion, is something that we all need in this confused age. 

After scrolling through the platform for a while and checking out everything they had to offer, I decided to sign up for Journalism Workshop. The details and description given on the website, made it easier for me know what to expect out of this workshop.

Being a B.Com Student, who wanted to pursue Mass Communication, MyCaptain came in as a blessing in disguise and gave me the push needed to pursue my passion.


My Workshop Experience

I was mentored by Captain Shantam, and he ensured that we understood the fundamentals of Journalism. We used to have live interactive sessions with him and he cleared the queries of all mentees patiently. The content provided to us during the workshop was highly engaging.

Captain Shantam used to go out of his way to help us out. I distinctly remember that I once needed help with debate sessions and Captain Shantam helped me with that as well. Without his guidance, I wouldn’t have been able to come so far in my journey.



My Journey Ahead

After the workshop I was filled with confidence and I decided to keep on grabbing the opportunities that came my way. Soon, i started interning as a Content Writer and it is true, you learn more about the field when you are working than just reading about it. So far I have interned at Swacchcoin for a month, followed by which I interned at The Concept India and presently I am working as a writer with The Bachpan News.

I love weaving stories, and eventually my story also got published in the anthology, Love is Magic. These have to be some of my biggest achievement so far and I can’t wait to see what life has in store for me.

I personally believe that no matter what your passion is, you always need the push in the right direction to achieve your dreams. And MyCaptain provided me that nudge.
