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.
