Loreto College has honed my leadership skills and given me the opportunity to be a young committed woman, alive to the needs of the world. I got recruited on campus and was placed in Cognizant Technology Solutions, as an Instructional Designer. Trained with the Loreto values of sincerity and commitment, i have been able to go the extra mile in the field ofsocial work in Cognizant's Outreach initiative. I thank Loreto College for helping me become the young woman of change.
My Department helped me grow as a student, as my Professors taught me not only how to master the subject, but also how to be the master of my own life. And my College helped me grow as a person, as it taught me how to be a responsible, humble and grateful human being. Proud to be a Loretoite! Thank you Loreto!

Loreto instilled in me all the qualities that an Education institution is expected to - perfection, punctuality, discipline, management of time, resources and people, and of course self-management. It also helped me bring out the leadership and entrepreneurial qualities in me and truly gave me wings to fly! P.S. I owe the foundation of my entrepreneurial venture - Wrilax (Write to Relax) to the skill of Calligraphy that i learnt at this institution.
