Hello all,

I am Nitisha Jagtap. I belong to the 2015 batch of DSK School. My family hails from Latur. My parents decided to move my sister and me to Pune, ‘oxford of the east’ so that we could get good educational exposure. I was just 6 years old when we came to Pune. I got the most enriching atmosphere in school which was instrumental in shaping my personality. I chose to opt for humanities post 12th standard and decided upon preparing for civil services. With god’s grace, I got into the Indian Police Service (IPS) in 2021. I have completed my phase 1 training at Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel National Police Academy in Hyderabad. The past one year has been transformative- I have undergone rigorous training and learnt several ways and techniques involved in policing. I am borne on the Assam cadre which means I will be serving in the state of Assam. Though it is miles away from my home in Maharashtra, I hope to perform my duty with utmost sincerity and dedication and uphold principles of honesty, integrity, etc. that DSK school had instilled in me in my formative years.

As an Alumnus of DSK School, I have fond memories of my time spent in this school. I remember the warmth and kindness of the teachers who ensured that every student was given an opportunity to succeed. Their guidance and support not only helped me to excel academically but also instilled in the values of discipline, hard work and perseverance.

As I reflect on my time at DSK School, I realise that it was much more than a place of learning. It was home away from home a place where I felt safe and supported. The memories I made at DSK School will always hold a special place in my heart and I will forever be grateful to all the opportunities and experiences it provided to me.

To the present DSKites, I offer these words of advice:  Cherish your time here and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. The memories and lessons you take with you will last a lifetime.

“Don’t ever let somebody tell you , you can’t do something! Not even me alright?”

I live by this quote from my most favourite film the pursuit of happiness. I remember a 13 year old Mohika sitting at the corner of the class, an introvert who was even scared to read a paragraph in front of the class. If someone told me then that I would be hosting for an international brand after a few years I would hardly believe them! But here I am now with a dazzling self-confidence, a theatre artist, an actor, a model and a host. I have worked in adfilms , songs and have participated and won a few beauty pageants like The International Glamour Project Miss India, Maharashtra Times Shravan Queen which gave me the opportunity to model for brands like Avildha herbals, Baggit, L’oreal Paris , Matrix to name a few. I was a part of the commercial Marathi play ‘Gajab Tichi Ada’ and another play ‘Unwanted’ where I played the lead character. I am a trained Bharatnatyam and belly dancer and used to work as an assistant choreographer and dancer in the industry before this and have also won two endowment awards in Bharatnatyam . Apart from that currently I’m hosting for an international energy drink and I am their official host from India.

School has played a very important part to help me become who I am today because all the activities that we had in school are helping me today professionally. Also because I got to know what I was not good at, I tried and focused on what I can do well and that’s how I have chosen this path. There’s a long way to go but when I look back I have realised  I’ve actually come a long way and there’s no turning back.
