Who says hard work doesn’t pay?

Born in a family that always believes in making a mark, Navyashri Natarajan pass­ing II PUC examination with 94.3% comes as no surprise. Right from her primary and higher primary school days, Navyashri has been good in studies. The 18-year-old girl, who scored 92 in Kannada, 84 in English, 97 in physics, 98 in chemistry, 96 in math­ematics and 99 in computer science, is obviously elated with her performance.

When you ask her if she expected to do so well in the examination, her answer is a firm ‘yes’. Why not? Given her preparations in the last eight months or so, she had every reason to feel confident of scoring well in the exami­nations. Right through the year, the youngster would study six hours a day besides being attentive in the class. Able support from her parents Natarajan A, a teacher, and mother Veena, home­maker, it seems, did all the trick. A firm believer in hard work, Navyashri firmly says anyone can excel in studies provided he or she concentrates hard.

A student of Chaithra PU College, Navyashri is all praise for her principal and teachers. “They always sup­ported students to do well and those who were above average, were asked to stay focused and the results are showing,” she reasons.

With a CET ranking of 9000, Navyashri has set sights on pursuing engineering in In­formation Science or Comput­er Science. In the same breath, she says, “After BE, I want to do MTech and if possible, MS after that,” with confidence writ large on her face.

“There is a way if there is a will,” goes an old say­ing. A firm believer in this, Navyashri could be a role model for all those who want to achieve something in life. Though early days in her ca­reer, Navyashri is too young a girl to know what is in store. All that she knows is to keep working hard.
