Winning two out of three rounds, she began her intense training for World Skills Kazan, 2019.
Through the leadership and guidance of her mentor, Shweta went on to participate in two friendly international competitions that were held in Abu Dhabi and Italy respectively. In the Italian competition, she won silver medal for India. Her training under Mr. Sathish included several demo test papers, the correction and constant checking of her technical and objective marks and further skill enhancement that made her match the international standard.
Due to his constant diligence and effort towards the skill of Graphic Design Technology, Shweta was able to bag the bronze medal, hence becoming the first Female Indian candidate to get a medal for her country.
