Pals, perseverance pays

india Updated: Feb 27, 2012 11:58 IST

When we were in school, the only thing expected from us was to score good marks. Good marks do not mean first division, it meant to score 90% and above. However, as far as I am concerned, I used to do totally the opposite of what was expected of me. Getting low scores and getting reprimanded by parents and teachers were a routine for me. This went to such hilt that after Class 10 I had to change my school.

School changed, teachers changed, classmates changed but I was still the same. Same old saga continued till Class 12. I still cannot describe that how much I dreaded parents-teachers meeting and how I used to confront my father a night before it.

As they say there is a bright morning after every dark night, things in my academic life too started looking up. I scraped though the examinations. I bagged a good rank in Indraprastha University and made my into Fairfield Institute of Technology and Management to pursue BBA-CAM. Finally, I was over with stressful examination fear and my transition to smooth college was a welcome change in life.

Here I am today in a college which makes me learn though field-based research and thus connecting learning to industry-based requirement. Besides, I also do part-time modeling and earn money to meet my expenses.

All these experiences in my life have taught me one thing - success and failure are the two sides of the same coin. In life, only perseverance pays. So friends, whenever you feel like giving up just tell yourself - when the going gets tough the tough gets going.
