From being a journalist to an engineer to a chartered accountant, these young girls sure have many dre­ams.

Veena, a student of arts, is all praises for the teachers of JNC. “They teach extremely well. Our seniors are really friendly too.” Many of Veena’s aunts and sisters have also studied in JNC. “And my dad’s aunt used to be the principal of the college,” she adds.

The commerce students are already getting along really well. Says Aleena, a student of commerce, “I was so nervous when I stepped in to the college. It was like walking into an ocean of unknown people. I was a bit hesitant to even ask people their names. But slowly, I formed a group of frie­nds.” Aiming to be a chartered accountant, Aleena wants to make her mother proud.

Sharon Stephenson, a student of commerce, had quite an interesting experience on her first day. “I didn’t know which class I was in so I had to shift from one class to another,” she laughs. “The seniors are extremely nice and have been telling us all about the college,” she exclaims. Sharon has taken part in the dance auditions and hopes to get selected in the college dance team. “I like playing badminton and throwball too.”

Neha, a student of PCMB (science), likes the friendly atmosphere of the college. “I have made lots of friends,” she gushes. “I find biology a bit tough so I have to work hard on it,” she adds. “However, I love dancing and playing basketball, football and

Tamanna and Neha BK, two more freshers, were in the same school before they joined JNC. So they were happy to be with each other and also make new friends in college. “I sat in Tamanna’s section actually,” smiles Neha while emphasising that like her peers, she loves to dance too. While Tamanna says, “I got admission in Christ College but my parents wanted me to come to JNC. I have studied in a co-education school so initially, I found it strange to be in an all girls’ college. But now I am really enjoying myself.”

Tamanna is a jack of all trades as she wants to make it into the teams of choir, basketball, drama and dance. Natasha, another commerce student, aims to be the class representative. “I would like to be a class and sports representative this year, and the college sports’ representative next year,” she hopes. “I have had a great time so far and the seniors are really fun, friendly and impartial,” she adds.  The freshers have been spending a lot of time exploring the college and love to hang out at eating joints nearby like Lazeez and Meghna’s Biryani. As far as style is concerned, they would like to strike their own fashion statement in keeping with the dress code of the college. “As long as you are not wearing something too revealing, it’s alright,” they say.
