It was a very difficult situation to face. As a result of our economic instability, it has become challenging to continue my further studies. But my mother never lost hope, restabilized our family conditions, and cleared all the problems that were coming in my studies. As my mother always said my father wanted me to become a doctor and serve the community, When l was growing up their dream became mine. But all the hurdles were not crossed. At the end of the 10th class, my classmates were leaving school for coaching classes but that expensive coaching was not affordable for me. I was very disappointed at that time and decided to continue my studies for the medical entrance exam at the school itself. But another turning point came in my life when the Dakshana Foundation selected me for NEET preparation in Pune. After 2 years of proper guidance and hard work, I am successful in fulfilling my and my parents' dream. I got 685 out of 720 in NEET and got the AIR -1104 and CAT rank-27. Today when I look back through the past years, I realise that those harsh situations were very important and had made me so strong and I have enjoyed this journey of life throughout.
