Ever since its inception in 2001 Ambitions 4 Photography Academy has made a difference and change in the lives of many learners in photography. Among them, there are few, who had made it really big and achieved their qualification despite of many constrains and challenges in their personal life.
ESMERALDA ELIZABETH PETERSEN, an overseas student from Brazil, mother of three kids is a very special student for Ambitions4 Photography Academy. She was working as a secretary before joining Ambitions and had a lot of passion for photography. She could make her dream come true by joining Ambitions when her husband came to India on an assignment for little more than four years. She joined our full time Diploma, BTEC level-5 and had completed it on time with flying colours.
The major challenge for her was, to mange her family of five and balance the studies at Ambitions4. As she speaks Spanish, she was not comfortable with English initially but managed to learn English along with photography. The amount of attention she showed in the class and studio sessions was amazing. The level of commitment to complete the assignments and projects on time with quality submission was something that surprised us all. She had participated all the photography tours, workshops, and attended as many real time jobs as possible during her course time.
The amount of hard work, time management skills, balancing the studies and family, coping up with English as a medium of instruction were some of the special qualities of Esmeralda. She was truly genuine during the entire course time and took the best from the faculty, facility and the course.
People find a lot of reasons for not doing something but, the determination to win the BTEC HND Level -5 Diploma, despite of her constrains as a full time home maker, and a non English speaking learner is some thing that has to be appreciated and taken as a lesson by other learners. Now she had left for Europe and has plans to practice as a portrait and fashion photographer. We wish her all the very best to establish as a successful and popular photographer.
