Bhubaneswar: Subhashree Maharana, a resident of Shantipalli slum is the living proof of ‘When there is a will, there is a way’. Despite several financial constraints and challenging living conditions, Subhashree managed to bag the second position with 93% in annual +2 Science Stream exams conducted by Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE).

Her father is physically challenged and her mother is a duty-bound housewife. However, they never persuaded her to succumb to her fate and minimal finances. In the quaint little slum house, there was always a positive and encouraging atmosphere.

Absence of electricity or scarcity of resources never proved to be roadblocks in her dedication towards her studies and her end goal. Subhashree always believed that there is no substitute for hard work. She made sure to clock in 9-10 hours of study per day and gave equal importance to all subjects.

“I want become a doctor and serve the people. I also hope in overcoming all financial difficulties of my family and giving my parents a comfortable life,” she said.

After expressing gratitude to her family members, the student of BJB autonomous college also thanked VIBGYOR coaching centre, NGOs and Good Samaritans who helped fund her +2 education. “Everybody’s efforts and well wishes have put me in this spot today,” she said.

Imparting golden advice to young students like her, she said, “Despite all hardships, never get distracted from your goal, ambition and duty. And, always have self-confidence. Never doubt yourself.”
