Big switch from Engineering to Entertainment..

Well i am an engineering graduate this year and i was previously strong willed regarding getting posted in a good IT company and i was also handed the offer letter by a leading IT company to join them within 2 months of completion of my Engineering. Suddenly i got a chance to feature in a Youth show after 5 days of my engineering final exams. I got a chance to perform a group dance and a mono acting in that show. The day the show was aired, i was flooded with positive and overwhelming responses from my friends and relatives after they saw my performance in that episode. Since then, i decided if i would try my hand in the media world then it would do no harm to my career. So after few days, i took the final decision to quit the offer letter and focus on my new found passion for media. I gave quite a many auditions for different TV shows and was shortlisted. I am now working as a full time anchor on a leading TV channel and is being paid a handsome amount. My talent and creativity got me this far but trust me, it was not that easy as it seems. The decision of switching to a non-engineering area was the toughest decision i have taken in my life and i am proud of whatever i have done. If i had to do it all over again, then i will never step back. Where there is a will, there is a way.
