Want To Be A Doctor For The Poor

Harini, who studies on a scholarship
in Grade 7 at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri,
has trudged a difficult journey this far.
Her father was an alcoholic who
habitually abused his wife and was
diagnosed with brain cancer. He
couldn't be saved despite the family
spending INR 3 lakhS for his treatment.

Her mother now runs a shop and also
does tailoring from home to feed her 5
children but is still unable to meet their
basic needs.

While her siblings study at a government
school, Harini is doing well at Isha Vidhya –
she's diligent and meticulous with her
classwork and homework, and an active
participant in class discussions. She has
won prizes in athletics at the school level.

Harini loves the computer and math
classes and says that she is always
trying to do her best at academics to
make her mother happy and support
her. She wants to become a doctor –
like the doctor next door, and work
to serve poor people in villages.

Isha Vidhya Has Made Me Confident

Deepasri and her younger brother study
on scholarships at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri.
Her parents are not educated – her father
is a two-wheeler mechanic and her mother
is a tailor, but both their incomes put
together are insufficient to fund the
education of the siblings.

This class topper is now in Grade 10 and
says that her teachers inspire her and have
helped build her self-confidence. Deepasri's
teachers are pleased with her performance,
especially her English teacher who finds her
a curious and promising learner, attentive in
class, with no qualms about asking
questions to clarify concepts and deepen her
understanding.

Deepasri is grateful for the opportunity she
got to develop new skills every day through
different activities, maintain good health with
Yoga, and also to exhibit her talent in sports.
She has won prizes in athletics at the school
and district levels and wants to pursue sports
at college too.

She aspires to study B.Sc. in Nursing –
inspired by the nurses whom she has seen at
work in hospitals.
