Ms Rashmi Misra says:

Teaching is not just a job or profession for me rather it is my passion and my dream, I always wanted  to be a teacher in my concerned subject (Food, Nutrition). when i got to know about the recruitment  of SSU in  Food, Nutrition  dept.

I immediately applied with a hope to achieve my dream job. SSU is not just an educational institution but also a spiritual eco friendly and  peace loving organisation, as I am a vegetarian & spiritual person this organisation attracted me  and my inner soul motivated me to be a part of this great academic institution. I feel blessed and happy to be a part of the SSU family. Thank you so much for choosing me as a member of your family.
