Always been strong and confident .As a young school student wanting to lead and becoming a group leader of any project ,taking responsibility throughout till the level of outcome, and representation of projects and assignments and presentations was exciting,adventurous and reassuring as I witness myself as one whose intrigued ,inquisitive ,a thirst for knowledge ,learning and absorbing ,often wondering about the possibilities ,how different things could have been ,creating my own space of comfort,experimenting and finding myself in the library trying to connect the dots from all that is being taught in classes ,to understand the application ,practice and performance of knowledge , exploring structures forms styles and techniques , staying alert ,attentive,perceptive,receptive and responsive to my environment. The art room is usually where I would find my ideas finally taking shape,a place of comfort where I could experiment and examine depths ,sometime finding myself in my dreams,talking to myself ,making a relationship with own self,finding correlations with and in my external and internal realities. Extracurriculars such as sports, ; soccer,cricket,pittu,badminton,tennis,swimming,gymnastics, basketball, I would find myself usually playing with boys, a Tom boy during my high school years. Theatre ,classical dances and music , performing arts, spic macays ,Olympiads , acting in skits in assemblies, interclass board making competitions , art and craft ,science laboratories , indoor games room where few of the common places I d find myself on a regular. 

The most cherished memories and experiences from school would have to be school trips,whether a single day trips to national and cultural heritage sites,parks,planetarium,museums,wildlife sanctuaries, steeped in religion ,enriching art and architecture, an exonerated feeling of awe would take over my whole being and I d be immensely inspired and motivated to share with my parents,illustrate, depict my experience maintaining a portfolio .from single day endeavours ,imminent artists writers sports personalities frequenting our school, it was only common to seek and discover our won passions and interests as high school came to an end. A final big experience and learning was from the cultural exchange trip to Hunan Province to China , where I got to stay in a typical Chinese household ,with language being a barrier, the biggest learning was communication from the heart, when all would fail and only gestures smiles and hugs could express the depths of gratitude and honor felt for the family and my new friend who I considered a part of family when I had the opportunity to host . China was a big stepping stone where my capacity and ability to adapt to a whole new environment and respect other cultures.
