Pals, perseverance pays

Highlight Story

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.
