I grew up experiencing two sides of my personality while in school. Later in life, after turning 21, I realized the importance of the two most important characteristics of a human being namely, self-awareness and individuality.

I was 9 years old when I was diagnosed with a Pancreatic Cyst; Doctors gave up on me but my mother did not. She used to whisper in my ears every day, “I did not give birth to a loser; you have to get up and live”. I think that ignited the fire within me.

After my surgery in Delhi, I met the most important person in my life, late Miss. A Joseph who happened to be my principal in the school. She understood every child’s worth and she knew how seriously I took challenges to progress forward in life hence challenged me to score above 75% in order to continue with my classmates. I stared at her, yes you read it right, I stared at her and said to her. “Yes, I will”. After 4 months, I was standing in the same queue where my classmates were, ready to move to Grade 5 A. My heartfelt thanks to all the lovely teachers who knew how far could I go and here I am, expressing my gratitude for them.

The ability to fight against evil and the will to keep moving forward takes you ahead. You become what you think you can. As a woman, I believe in the power of love and kindness because the world needs you!  It took me 2 years to understand what was my true potential (well, I am still on it). Thereafter, I appeared for NIFT’s entrance in 2013 and scored AIR 5. The year 2013 brought a lot of good vibes and celebrations for me on the personal front. Studying in an institution like NIFT, Mumbai for 4 years changed my life; the struggle was real but life is a roller coaster ride.

Before I conclude, I would like to wish you all a very bright future and earnestly seek your blessings. Live like there is no tomorrow!
