Wheelchair-bound girl scores perfect 10 GPA

Similar feat achieved by girl from EWS background

 Paralysed limbs were no bar for 16-year-old Deepti Kansal to score a perfect 10 Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA) in class 10 boards whose results were declared on Thursday.

“I had a hunch that my hard work would pay off,” said the confident teenager, a student of Amity International School in Noida. “Studying regularly is the key. Rote learning doesn’t help,” she added, describing her mantra for success. Deepti used to do four to five hours of self-study every day.

She likes to paint as it kept her busy when she wanted to relax in between long hours of studies. “I do oil painting and make cards. I love reading novels as well,” she smiled.
The teenager aspires to become a mechanical engineer. “My favourite subject is Mathematics. So I will opt for non-medical stream with economics in class 11,” Deepti said.

She attributes her success to her parents and teachers. “I wouldn’t have been able to score well without the support of my parents. My teachers have always encouraged me and pushed me to do better,” Deepti said.

She has gone to visit her grandmother to enjoy her success. “I have come to my grany’s place. My parents are planning to throw a party day after tomorrow,” Deepti said.
Her jubilant mother said Deepti deserved a ‘perfect 10’. “She is a sincere student and she deserved it. Even her teachers are proud of her,” she said.

Her teachers said she is a diligent student. “She is a dedicated and punctual student. We all knew that she would do outstandingly,” said Renu Singh, Principal of Amity International School.

In a similar tale of perseverance and hard work, the daughter of a driver overcame the hardships to score a ‘perfect 10’ in class 10 boards.

Asmitaa Gupta made her parents proud by scoring 10 CGPA. “I can’t believe that I have scored 10 CGPA. It will take to sink it in,” said the teenager.

Happy-go-lucky Asmitaa studied when she felt like. “I am not a bookworm. Though I like fun and frolic, I used to take out time for studies,” she said.

Her mother, initially, thought she failed in class 10 boards. “She was not telling me the result. She went to her school in the afternoon and came back but she was quiet. So I thought she failed,” said Munni Devi.

“Later, she told me that she has scored 10 on 10,” Devi said.  Herself a singer, Asmitaa said, “I like to listen to songs and watch movies.”
