Megha Kukar (Batch of 2013)
Creative Producer at Freshly Ground Entertainment

XIC Ranchi always opened the doors and let me know and identify opportunities where I can do and accomplish and be successful at something. I started learning right from the first day and I have gained so much. What one needs is the correct guidance and that is what one can look for at XIC (LIFE). I have a great respect and admiration for the teachers here, and couldn't have asked for a better learning experience.

Freelancer, Kolkata

Choosing to be in XIC Ranchi taught me one thing- the field I have opted for needs me to take risks and not look for convenient opportunities. It needed me to be enterprising and dynamic. Being the first batch of an institute can always put ones mind in bouts of doubts. But I took the risk and pushed myself to be enterprising and today I am happy to remember the day I did.

Amrutha Rao (Batch of 2012)
Asst. Camerawoman at Prajavani TV, Hyderabad

I studied in XIC, LIFE, Ranchi (2011-12) and really had a good and fruitful time. The lecturers are very encouraging and I got a very good chance to handle the equipment on my own. I learned all the courses with a hands-on experience. As I am interested in camera operation, I am working as an operative camera girl in ETV, Hyderabad and I also got chance as Assistant director for an upcoming film. I hope all coming batches of my institute will utilize the facilities provided.
