Digital Deepak Internship

This is all about her success but how she reached on top by giving a distinctive direction is where her thought “The Law of Change” comes in. She has always travelled to different places since her childhood due to paramilitary background of her parents. She settled in Delhi and during her Master’s degree got placed in a reputed company but COVID 19 in March 2020 made her onboarding delayed. She was worried about her career but deep inside wanted to go in in digital marketing rather than any other domain. She even thought of doing MBA in digital marketing but there was no such course in India and she ended up doing it in general management. This was the time when she made a decision that changed her whole life. When everyone was struggling with their boredom in the lockdown and the quarantine period, she discovered herself by joining an internship by Digital Deepak which was no less than a golden opportunity for a person like her. Diksha got a chance to work under his guidance and learnt from him for the next 16 weeks. Though it was just 16 weeks, but the vision was not for short term and it was to develop herself into version 2.0. Next, she joined a company and also practised freelancing simultaneously. She mastered the art of social media marketing beautifully and got many clients from the travel industry. Even then she didn’t stop learning. According to her, fitness also plays a crucial role in our life which can be taken care with little workout and a healthy diet.

She believes life is itself a forever learning process and has learnt many skills each time she wished and fulfilled her dreams. She was fond of gadgets and gifted herself an action camera GoPro, not only this, she was also interested in music and thus bought a guitar and learned to play it. Diksha gifted a dream tour package to her parents and this was the time when she never turned back to stop herself and kept on moving in her life with the same zeal and passion.
