Scholar Success Story – Nisha Panwar, Marubeni Scholarship Winner

Buddy4Study: Share with us some experiences of your academic and professional journey.

My academic journey so far has been full of ups and downs. I did my early schooling till 3rd standard from Kotdwara, my aunt’s native place after which I moved to Khekra district in Baghpat and joined Gurukul Vidhya Peeth School. Thereafter, I got selected in Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya on the basis of my class 10th merit. I completed my class 12th (in Commerce stream) with 89% marks. Although I wanted to join Delhi University for higher education, my family’s financial conditions did not allow me to do so. Thus, I joined B.Com. degree programme at Dr. P D B H Government PG College in Kotdwara. I am also pursuing CS alongside my B.Com. and I have successfully passed my CS foundation exam. Currently, with my third year of B.Com., I am preparing for the CS executive level examination.

Buddy4Study: What motivated you to pursue a CS course?

Ever since my childhood, I had a strong command over theoretical concepts than calculations and accounting. So, I decided to pursue CS (Company Secretary) programme. I believe pursuing a professional course like CS can help you achieve the greatest heights of success if you are hard working.

Buddy4Study: What were the key challenges you come across during the course of your journey till here?

As I have already said, my journey so far was full of ups and downs. It involved emotional and painful moments too, which do bring tears in my eyes even today. A family without a father is incomplete. I lost my father when I was 4 years old. My mother is the only earning person in the family. Thus, financial constraints were always there. However, I don’t want to let this phase of my life undermine my ambitions. I still have faith and confidence that my hard work and dedication will definitely take me to my goals.

Buddy4Study: What has been your source of inspiration?

My biggest source of inspiration is my mother, who has always motivated me to achieve my ambitions. Besides her, there was a girl in my neighbourhood, who suggested to me about the CS course when I was in class 11th. She was also preparing for the CS course without any coaching and thus guided me at every step. Her efforts and confidence boosted my confidence and inspired me to head on to pursue the CS programme.

Buddy4Study: How has your family supported you in pursuing your academic?

Since, I did not have my father, my mother was the only support for me and my brother. She always stood by my side and encouraged me to pursue my aim. Since she works as a helper in an aanganbaadi, her salary was not sufficient enough to even manage the daily household chores. Still, she tried to manage everything on her own without any support from the relatives. I have seen my mother deal with every hardship and never letting anything coming to us. This makes me proud of her and even inspires me a lot. I will never break her trust.
