Dimapur, March 3 (EMN): The department of commerce and management of Tetso College organised a talk on entrepreneurship on March 3 in the college auditorium during which students were acquainted with the field of entrepreneurship with inputs from a student who is said to be an entrepreneur also.

Ididaule Ngia was the guest speaker of the event, a press release that was received here on Tuesday stated, offering updates about the programme.

The press release asserted that the resource person “is Nagaland’s youngest gold director of Oriflame India” and a B.Sc. 6th semester student of Kohima Science College at Jotsoma.

Referring to her-self as a “studentpreneur,” Ngia was stated to have narrated her story, experience, and goals stating that her love for part-time jobs was what got her interested in entrepreneurship, the press release stated.

“When you become an entrepreneur, you become your own boss,” she opined, and that the flexibility and freedom in the work environment was one of the many perks in entrepreneurship. Further, lamenting that there are more than 70,000 unemployed educated youths in the state of Nagaland, Ngia asserted that “not everyone is born to be a government employee” and challenged the students to venture into entrepreneurship.

Speaking further about her experience as an entrepreneur and how she reached her position today, Ngia said that being a student can be hectic ‘but where there is a will, there is a way,’ the updates quoted her as having said.

‘Not only did she shun mobile games and movies completely for two years, but also managed her time judiciously and would invest her free classes and breaks working for her business,’ the press release stated.

Having established her network from her hostel dorm in Kohima to other parts of the country now, the press release stated, Ngia spoke about her goal to help students become financially independent and also to achieve bigger targets in her field.
