The brain behind Yellow Collar Careers in India, Ms. Mala established the program through her organization, I Love Mondays, which helps teenagers do what they love, lets them know how to become really good at it and connects them to the right people to become successful.
She has authored the book “I Love Mondays”, published by Harper Collins. With over 1,00,000 students coached by her, Ms. Mala is a national level debater and a seasoned toastmaster for over 6 years, serving as a keynote speaker at NEN, WIN India, GHZC India to name a few.
At her talk, our students learned to distinguish between the Blue collar, White collar and Yellow collar jobs. Ms. Mala spoke about the traits of a yellow collar job, namely competency, doing what you love, the dominance of the right brain, being a jack of all trades but master of at least one and developing empathy.
She also made the students exercise their right brain with the brain-gym exercises. Our children had many queries about understanding what kind of jobs they would like to pursue. Having answered all their queries, Ms. Mala concluded the talk by leaving them with a virtual reality experience.
Ms. Mala is a Business and Performance coach and a certified NLP practitioner, having trained over half a million rural Indian children and mentored several companies in the Indian start-up space. We thank her for guiding our students through such an insightful session.
Sports has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does ~ Nelson Mandela.20th December 2017 saw our children turn up at Ekya School Kanakapura Road dressed as cowboys and cowgirls, farm animals and farmers. Themed "Barnyard Fun", the Annual Sports Meet 2017-2018 at our Kanakapura Road campus kicked off with the Sub-Juniors performing a chicken dance. This was followed by the Juniors who put up stellar performances to the tunes of cowboy songs. The Senior group of students stole the show by dancing to Cotton Eyed Joe as Scottish farmers. With the performances concluded, our children took to the track, with two events to compete per group - Market race, Potato race, Lemon & Spoon race, Duck Walk race to name a few. It was a day filled with cheers of joy and winning spirit as our excited parents and grandparents joined in on the fun, with games like Hula Hoop and Musical Chair. In tune with the theme, Barnyard photobooths and games like Feed the Pig, Tail the Pig, Rope the House entertained both parents and children.
