It was 2007, when the Founder President, Dr. Udita Tyagi, decided to do something different for the students than the normal education. She spent her college days studying the formation of new substances, investigating the science behind the composition, reactions and properties of matter. It was only during this time Udita realized how complex psychological interactions are, especially in a student's mind. She found that although students excel in some field, they pick another field for their career for one reason or the other.
That brought the concept of “Be what you want” under the banner 'csDISHAA', a project for Career Counseling and Career Motivation. Considering their needs, this project is brainchild of her to assist the students recognize their interest and choose a career accordingly with an opportunity to explore, discover and clarify how and why they feel as they do. The project was undertaken by her to help the students discover their true potential and interest in various fields, in order to help them choose their right career. Through the efforts of csDISHAA, students can identify career choices, set career goals, and have higher self-esteems at an early age. Ultimately, they will further their education and have a better chance of succeeding in the "do or die" world in which we live.
The project covered almost 15000 students from 50+ schools at no obligation to either student or the school. That was her first experience with the social work.
With all the experience, she understands the requirement of youth of today. She has worked with schools, colleges and NGOs and has helped students to develop the life skills needed to deal with problems before they occur, and so enhance personal, social, and academic growth. She has been counselling the students to evaluate their abilities, interests, talents, and personality characteristics so that students can develop realistic academic and career goals. Her experience include working with students individually, in small groups, or with entire classes, with parents, teachers, school administrators, school psychologists, doctors and social workers.
