Shrimati, Priyanka Sharma, is an alumna of, Sarada Sishu Teertha, Suryasen Colony, Uttar Banga. Vidya Bharati alumni portal team interviewed her to share her story which has been given below:
Interviewer: Kindly tell us something about your professional and academic background.
Priyanka : I am an alumna of Sarada Sishu Teertha, Suryasen Colony. I have passed my class 5th from this school and after that shifted to Sarda Vidya Mandir from where I passed my 7th in the year 2007. In 2010, I completed my class 10th exam from BSS Kadamtalla and in the year 2012, I passed 12th from New Lite Academy, Sikkim.
After my schooling, I have done my graduation in B.Tech in Electronic Engineering from Jalpaiguri Govt Engineering College. Then for a year I had prepared for the Government exams before joining Infosys, Pune as a System Engineer in the year 2019 and still continuing there till the present.
Interviewer: Kindly tell us something about your family background.
Priyanka: I stay in Pune because of my work but my family stays in Siliguri. My family consists of my parents, younger brother and a sister. My father is a Journalist by profession.
Interviewer: Are you associated with any kind of social work?
Priyanka: I have been taught to think about and serve others before myself from my school, teachers as well as my parents. I try to get involved as much as I can in social service and do my bit for the society. I was involved with an NGO named ‘Hamari Pehchan’. I did free of cost Digital marketing for them as such NGOs often do not have extra funds to do such activities but are necessary to reach out to wider audiences.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something about your school or Vidya Bharati in general?
Priyanka: I feel if the foundation of any student is as good as that of students from Vidya Bharati, his/her future is bright. The education provided by Vidya Bharati schools takes into account the complete development of their students and not just mere academics.
As for the students I would like to tell them that if they work hard in a persistent manner, they can reach their goal for sure. When I was in Vidya Bharati school, it was a Hindi medium school, but later,when I joined an English medium school, I faced several problems which slowly with persistence I managed to overcome. So I can tell from experience that no problem that is big enough that cannot be solved through dedication and hard work.
My school taught and inspired me to serve my society and my country. It helped me to give a new depth to my life, for which I am very thankful. I feel that I am connected with my school from the heart. One should never forget what Vidya Bharati has taught us about our nation and culture.
