“There were so many highlights of ‘Attitude’ session in the fashion program but here are my take-away from the session: 1. Let go of things which are not important and focus on things which are useful 2. Not to keep the burden of “Ego – Eliminating good opportunities” 3. Coming out of comfort zone – This is the time to get out of our comfort zone and do what is required in life. Over all, it was much needed session for motivating us and keep us going in life no matter what.”
