Rucha considers herself to be the privileged one

Rucha Shah scored 97.2 per cent in CBSE Class XII (Non-medical) examinations. Student of Udgam School for Children,Thaltej,she aspires to become an engineer in biotechnology. She is the only daughter of a businessman while her mother is a management consultant.

“Certainly,I am happy though I was expecting to score this percentage. Engineering in Biotechnology has intrigued me as it requires knowledge of both Science subjects as well as Mathematics and I want to make a career in this field,” said Rucha.

Being the only child,she said,“With more benefits,it has some disadvantages too. One gets all the attention and do not have to worry about sharing everything. At the same time,company of a sibling is missed.” Her mother,Kairavi,whom she considers her best friend,said,“I can say that she is the privileged child.”

Aditi feels not much of a difference

A student of DPS Bopal,Aditi scored 96.8 per cent in Humanities and 100 in Psychology. Eagerly waiting for her Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) expected this Friday,she wants to pursue a degree in Law.

“In our entire family nobody is in this profession and if you ask me,I am too scared even with the mention of courts. So,this is entirely her own decision with our complete support,” said her father Ashwani,who is an IIMA alumnus and runs his own management consultancy firm. Aditi’s mother Rashmi is a housewife. “With an extended family of cousins,I hardly felt that I am the only child,” said Aditi.

Dhruvi wants to become an inspiration

With 94 per cent in Commerce,Dhruvi Shah,a student of Udgam School for Children,Thaltej,wants to excel in business and management. “It is a general perception that females cannot be good managers and are not good businesswomen. I want to break this myth and also inspire all those parents as well as girls that no career or profession is gender restricted,”’ she said. She draws her inspiration from her mother Kitika,who is a manager in a tourism company for last 13 years and her father Neeraj who runs a textile business. “Business Administration and Economics are two subjects that interests me,” she added.
