Revant was enamoured by the world of the web and had an inherent passion to learn and sharpen his skills from a young age. At that point, he never imagined being a state champion. His curiosity to learn the web technology grew stronger by the day and his mother, Mrs. Anjul Mehra saw the young boy sit in front of a video channel picking up skillsets from tutorials and designing interesting tech modules. She felt her son was talented but needed proper mentoring & guidance to help him polish his skills. She chanced upon one of the instructor-led Aptech Learning training modules and took Revant for a free counseling session. When the instructor at Aptech Learning saw Revant's skill, they immediately identified his potential and decided to mentor him.
In a quick conversation, the 12-year-old, Revant Mehra said, "I always have been inclined towards computers and wanted to learn more than what I could find online here and there. I felt the need for real guidance. So with my parent's support, I got into the training with Aptech Learning. It was very exciting to be able to learn all of the technical modules so easily, thanks to my trainers. Getting a Silver is a definite motivation and has helped my self-confidence. I am determined to learn more and hopefully do better in the next rounds of the competition."
Revant's mother, Mrs. Anjul_Mehra sharing her feelings about her son's victory said, "I am overwhelmed with joy. Revant is a bright kid and I am happy that we can give him the kind of direction he needs. Aptech Learning has a good reputation in training & coaching and a strong curriculum. I did not think twice before deciding that this would be the perfect decision for Revant. I am a proud mother today."
