Hoola hoopers from California conduct a two-day workshop at Jaipuria Institute of Management Noida.
On the 8th and 9th of December 2012, Jaipuria Noida took its students thorough a very important lesson; that entrepreneurship is something more than making money – it is the chance of being happy for life.
Carissa Caricato (from Hoola for Happiness) came to Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida, all the way from California USA along with two of her colleagues. Over the next two days Carissa taught students of Jaipuria Noida how to hoola-hoop. Hoola Hoop is a simple sport that involves a toy hoop that is twirled around the waist, limbs or neck. She also explained how her organisation Hoola for Happiness, founded in July 2010, was bringing a smile to the less fortunate, orphans, and homeless.
Prior to starting Hoola for Happiness Carissa was the Marketing Director at Crisis Centre of Tampa Bay for nearly three-and-a-half years. After college Clarissa had visited Haiti in 2009, a country near United States, on a mission trip where she realized that the kids enjoyed hoola hooping very much. On returning to Florida she started taking Hoola dance classes. After that, she returned to Haiti numerous times.
“Hooping became my calling from God, and I quit my job, sold all my belongings to raise money, and started Hoola for Happiness.”
Through Carissa the student of Jaipuria Noida got to know the nitty-gritty of the working of a charity organisation. Finances were usually raised through donations. For accommodation, a family in the US was supporting her, while her trips to the 20 countries where Hoola for Happiness operates were being taken care of by her family member in the airlines industry. Carissa also takes dance classes to raise money. Her main ‘customers’ are churches, which organize mission trips and support the weaker sections of society.
“Clarissa made us realise that god has some reason behind sending her to India,” says a deeply inspired Priyanka Priya of Jaipuria Noida.“Indians enjoy hoola hooping as it is for all age and religion. We realised that Hoola hooping has become Clarissa’s way of connecting with people who do not speak her language.”
In India, Clarissa is connected to the Good News Centre in Ranchi, which has a church and a college and does a lot of social work. This two-day workshop yet again established Jaipuria Institute of Management as a leading innovator in business education, inspiring students to search within themselves their purpose in life.Read more

“Unending backing by the Jaipuria faculty creates a family-like support system that a student needs at this time”, says Harshita Shukla
Harshita Shukla topped all the three semesters and nearly topped in all the individual subjects as well. This winner attitude has helped her bag a placement with Orient Fans, a CK Birla Group subsidiary. She is being taken up as a Management Trainee and will be given the opportunity to do project-based work in different departments. After this intense training and monitoring of one year, the company will decide which department she will be absorbed into.
Sharing her experience of placement, Harshita says, “The recruitment process at Orient Fans was a four stage eliminative process. The first three rounds consisted of the Aptitude Test, Group Discussion and Interview and finally, there was a last interview with the Leadership team. The first three rounds were conducted in Lucknow with over 90 students. In the aptitude test 30 students were selected to sit for the next round, which was the group discussion. After the group discussion, 13 students got selected for the personal interview round. I was finally shortlisted for the last interview with the leadership team along with four other candidates. I was the only one to be shortlisted from the Noida campus. The last interview took place on 2nd Jan 2013, after which only two candidates were selected; luckily, I cracked it and found a place in the company.”
Harshita thanks her faculty at Jaipuria for the support and guidance she received in choosing the companies and preparing for them. The intense exercise of interviews and final placements creates a lot of stress and the backing of the faculty and staff creates a family-like support system for the student, something that Harshita is thankful for.Read more
