As SSLC results are out Gayathri, a student of Government Girl’s High School is one among the five toppers in the SSLC examination in the state.
Gayathri, the Daughter of Prakash and Vasanthi Devadiga, residing in the city, hails from an economically poor background. However, that was never a reason for her from achieving milestones in her studies. Prakash Devadiga, her father is a mason by profession and her mother is a daily wager rolling beedi for their livelihood. Gayathri has an elder brother.
Gayathri said, “I am very happy after seeing the SSLC results. I was expecting a good score in the examination but I achieved cent per cent marks. I never expected this. My parents and teachers have been very supportive.”
Pathway to the achievement was not that easy, she faced challenges while preparing for the exams, she said, “We were given holidays for some days during the row because of issues. It was a distraction and disturbed our regular classes. However, it did not affect my studies much since I utilized those holidays and focused more on my studies.. I worked really hard without joining any private coaching classes. The Mahamaya Foundation conducted online classes for us and it helped me a lot in securing a high score.”
Talking of her school, Gayathri said, “Though our school is government, it provided quality education and extended all kinds of support. I framed a time table and studied from 5 AM till evening. One of my senior students, Samatha, has been my inspiration.”.
“I always wanted to become a cardiologist. Hence, I chose PCMB in PUC as a specialization.. These days, the cardiac related problems are increasing and more specialists are needed. I would like to serve the society as a cardiologist.”
