She works as maid in five houses, and she still managed to secure 84% marks in class 12 exams

17-year-old Shalini will certainly provide inspiration, motivation and optimism to lot many people who face challenges in their life.  Shalini has scored 84 per cent in her Class 12 exam (in the science stream). Her result may sound ordinary, but her journey has been quite extraordinary.

In an article published by Bangalore Mirror, it was mentioned that Shalini helped her mother as a maid in five houses, she cleaned bathrooms, scrubbed utensils, cooked food and supported her brother as a nurse. In an interview to NDTV, Shalini told that her father Armugam was disabled in an accident and does not work anymore. Her mother Vijaya, the main bread earner, has to juggle her cleaning jobs with hospital duties.

Shalini didn’t have an easy ride during her school days too. She studied in Tamil medium from class one to seven, then she was shifted to Kannada medium till tenth standard. She later shifted to English medium for her PU studies at SGPTA-Deeksha College.

Just before her second PUC (Pre-University or 12th) board exams, her younger brother was diagnosed with third stage blood cancer. Shalini focused on her studies, but she also ensured that she supports her brother in the hospital.

Her hard word and difficult schedule have paid. Shalini has achieved something which will keep inspiring people. Her next goal is to crack the CET and get into a good college. We wish that she succeeds and sets higher benchmarks.
