She has made the city proud by winning an international poster-making competition. She also bagged a prize of about Rs 80,000.
Anusha Bhat, a student of Amity International School, Sector 43, Gurgaon, who participated in a poster-making competition on genes therapy, was adjudged the winner.
The competition was organised by Path University in the UK.
“In our school, a workshop on DNA necklace was organised by Path University. Later, we were asked to come forward for the competition. The theme was ‘Gene Therapy: Magic bullet for treating cancer’,” said 17-year-old Anusha.
“Though I won the prize, I think I could have done better,” the Class 12 student, who aspires to be a neurologist, said. According to Anusha, her father UBR Bhat, an engineer by profession, and mother Geeta Bhat, have been a great source of inspiration.
