Archana Jossy – that’s my name, and I was born on the 7th of November 1989 to LathikaKumari my mother and Jossy Ray my father in Thiruvananthapuram, the capital city of God’s own country, Kerala in India. My grandma lived with us, and she had the pleasure of taking me to Kindergarten school daily. I grew up and later attended the Nirmala Bhavan English Higher Secondary School and remained there for twelve years and I passed out from the twelfth in 2007. As I look back at my childhood I really appreciate what my parents have done for me and all the struggles we lived through, for it has made me the person I am today. I always looked toward my future with excitement.
After that I decided to get my Bachelor’s degree in Engineering in the field of Information Technology because I knew I wanted to be a Software Engineer. I joined the James College of Engineering and Technology under the prestigious Anna University for my Engineering – a college tucked within picturesque hills and lush green paddy fields in a place called Navalkadu near Nagercoil in Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu. And after 17 years, I left my loving parents to be at graduation for four years and to become an Engineer. And these years, I matured quite a bit and built up my self-confidence and independence.
Everyone has many strength, talents, and gifts. Mine are sports and being active. I have heard my parents say that I had, as a very young girl, a strong taste for music; but what I thought about I know not. Yes, I had a strong taste for music, and would sit for any number of hours watching and enjoying music.
I’m very musical especially in piano and the violin. In between, in 2003, I fell in love with music passionately and sincerely. It’s like, my world revolves around music, and I’ve been singing English classical songs ever since and that too in the alto.
I got through working as a Software Engineer in Aaric Technologies Ltd for one year, and then joined the Alamy Images at Technopark, Thiruvananthapuram as a Web Designer, the passion which I had nurtured in my heart for long.
Every day is a new day with me, a fresh start with every rising sun. I live each day step by step as if it’s my last. I believe God gives me the strength to make it through.
If I only had one word to describe myself I would say that I am plain-spoken. But in more words, I am a very practical, realistic, and a matter-of-fact person. When it comes to making decisions I like to look at things logically. I value tradition and loyalty. I know there is still so much more for me to do as an individual, and I look forward to the opportunities that are ahead. The opportunities to keep my parents proud and the opportunities to enhance the quality of my life and the lives of those close to me are boundless.
I can confidently say that I am ready for my future. But I am looking for a good opportunity in which I can make a contribution to the welfare of the company which I am working for. Along with this experience, I hope to develop myself to keep pace with the changes of the era in my profession. Read Less
