My hard work was consistently rewarded. Having worked for one year, I still wished to learn more and decided to pursue my MBA. I prepared diligently for all B-school entrance exams. I secured admission offers from 3 of the top 10 business management institutes of India. I chose to join S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research.
The tragedy of losing my parents at an early stage made me emotionally stronger and independent in the years that followed, and inculcated a sense of responsibility within me. I learnt what it takes to stand up and keep going after the storm has subsided. Being a self-driven person, my goal has always been to carve the path to success by acknowledging any forthcoming challenges. Today, I feel that I have transformed into a strong, mature and responsible individual. Hence, I can proudly say that courage and heart conquered the past which made a strong individual believer!
Today, I miss them a lot and wish if they could see me progressing. But, I am happy that I have uncle and aunt who gave me the utmost love that they could!
