‘From doubt-clearing sessions to exam preparation, ACFA teachers helped my daughter a lot during the pandemic’

Sumnesh Sharma, father of Kashish Sharma, a final year student of B Com at Apeejay College of Fine Arts, reveals why ACFA was the right choice for her daughter



Sumnesh Sharma, account officer, Indian Oil Corporation, says his daughter Kashish Sharma’s experience at Apeejay College of Fine Arts (ACFA) has been enriching. In an interview, The B Com student’s father talks about her future plans, what he observed during his visit to the college, and more. Edited excerpts:

What has your daughter’s overall experience been like?

Kashish is in her final year of graduation now. She attended college in her first year, which was great. Due to the online classes amid the pandemic, in a way, she missed out on a lot of on-campus experience.

What made you opt for ACFA?

My elder daughter Riddhima also completed M Com from ACFA. The children of some of my acquaintances were also studying there. Riddhima’s experience was good, which is why Kashish followed suit.

What do you think of ACFA’s infrastructure and staff?

I think it is one of the best, location-wise, too. The students come from a good background while the staff is very good. I also visited the college once and met some of Kashish’s teachers. Even when you talk to them on the phone, they are very polite.

How were the online classes?

They were regular. The teachers would also call separately to help Kashish with her syllabus. There were doubt-clearing sessions. They also helped a lot with the exams.

After B Com, what does Kashish plan to do?

If Kashish decides to pursue further studies, she will most likely do it in Commerce. I have suggested that she does an MBA, but she is keener on becoming a Certified Public Accountant. But who knows where life will lead her!

Does she participate in college activities?

Kashish was crowned Miss Fresher when she joined the college. Now, she is the president of the Student Welfare Association. Besides, she takes part in many college activities—Kashish likes to participate in dance events. Even now, she is preparing for an upcoming inter-college competition. It is good to see that ACFA encourages students to participate and gives them the required exposure.
