Carpenter's daughter makes her parents proud, gets 90 per cent

A carpenter’s daughter has shown true grit by overcoming hardships to clear the class 12 board exams with flying colours.

Preeti Sharma has scored 90.2 per cent marks.

“I wanted to make my family proud who have been supporting me all along. I want to stand on my feet so that I can help my family,” said Preeti, a student of Amity International School, Noida under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category.
Shyamsundar Sharma feels he is the luckiest father.

“We are delighted with her success. I am not that educated but I want her to pursue higher studies. She can study as much as she wants,” said Sharma.

Preeti’s mother is a homemaker, but when the family’s financial condition worsened she also worked as a domestic help.

“There were days when we didn’t have the money. Still we never let that affect Preeti’s studies. I will do everything to make my daughter study more,” said Sharma.

Priority to studies
The teenager said that her family is economically weak but her parents gave priority to her studies over everything.

“My father never said no, if I wanted a book. He would always ask me if I need any more study material,” Preeti said.

Teachers also applauded her effort. “She braved the challenges to score such high marks. She has always been a hard working and sincere student. She used to do her assignments on time,” said Renu Singh, principal of Amity International School, Noida.
“Her outstanding performance has made Amity proud. She will go places in her life.”
Even Preeti gave credit to her teachers.

“My teachers have always pushed me. They were always available for me,” Preeti added. Preeti is looking to get enrolled in a graduate course under Delhi University.
The coordinator for the economically weaker section students at the school also complemented Preeti.

“We had an idea that she would do well in her class 12 examinations.  She has outdone herself by scoring such high percentage with sheer determination and willpower,” the teacher said.
