Veronica Gera, a 2017 batch alumna of Sri VIS, Dwarka, did her country and alma mater proud by winning two Earthy 2019 trophies in the Travel Earth Bloggers Convention and Earthy Award night held at Sabah, Malaysia.

The convention was jointly hosted by Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board, Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents, Kalindi Air and Malaysian Airlines.

Gera had an average academic performance till Grade 10. Then she discovered her passion for photography and got support from her family. When the school discovered her passion, the principal organised an outdoor photography workshop. Vijay Bedi, winner of several photography awards conducted the workshop for Veronica and Devansh Saverynya, another budding photographer. In Class 11 Veronica got a compartment and was given some time to prepare for the paper. But that did not deter the principal from starting a Photography Club and making Veronica its head. She began a journey of self-discovery and creation of a newer self. She eventually became a freelance photographer and traveller. She pursued a photography course with the great photographer Raghu Rai. She started getting assignments while still in school. Her example shows that success in life does not depend only on marks but also on passion for one’s work.
