Teachers at the Karnataka Vidya Vardaka (K VV) High School are all praises for Apoorva M. The 10th grade student topped the school at the Karnataka State Board SSLC examinations with a score of 95.2%. The teachers say, “Apoorva is not only excellent in academics, she is a good orator too. She usually wins essay writing competitions, elocution, debate and other competitions not only at the school level but also at the inter-school level.
Apoorva says she enjoys studying as much as she enjoys participating in competitions. She studied everyday for four hours and that’s why she didn’t find the examinations tough. She says, “The teachers also made a reference to the previous year’s question papers and that helped us to get us acquainted with the kind of questions that would appear.”
The Akshaya Patra Foundation provides the mid day meal to the government aided private schools like KVV. Apoorva says, “I enjoy the mid-day meal as it is tasty. It actually refreshes us; we are all the more energetic and look forward to the afternoon classes.”
Even with financial difficulties back home, Apoorva looks ahead positively. She is ambitious and wants to become a doctor. Akshaya Patra is supporting Apoorva to realize her dream through Ananth Akshaya Education Initiative Scholarship.
