Rashmi (Interior Design & Decoration)
There are so many amazing learners in this trade, but Rashmi stands out. Ever since she was a child, Rashmi had a passion for art and design. Like many future designer’s, Rashmi was constantly rearranging her bedroom and producing “grand reveals” of newly designed rooms to surprise her parents. From a young designer, Rashmi went on to complete her pre-university course in Davanagere and then married to a gentleman. Though she lead a joyful life, Rashmi ultimately felt unfulfilled because, she wanted to pursue a career where she could expand upon her creative outlets, help people, and impact society.
Rashmi’s husband, was one of the main motivation for her. She says, “He always supported me and encouraged me to take up the challenge. She had no technical background, and no formal degree. In 2016, she became a part of our institution that's helped Rashmi to achieve her dream. During her last few months in the Interior Design & Decoration program at NSTI (W) Bengaluru, Rashmi landed a job as an Interior Designer for Ascent interiors. Rashmi, the young married women is a true inspiration to earn one of these opportunities.
And now we are so proud to introduce her to u as a Chief designer and Proprietor of an Interior Design firm at Bengaluru.
We wish her all the best!!
