Never Give Up

Salma struggled to study in the first standard. She was ridiculed a lot by her classmates, friends and relatives too. With the help of a kind teacher to mentor her, she was able to successfully complete her studies.

I am Salma and I was very weak in studies. When I was in the first standard I did not know ABCD properly and my classmates used to laugh at me. So, I never mingled with them and I used to stay alone rather than be in a group. When I flunked in the third standard all my relatives and friends used to make fun of me.

But one fine day my teacher spoke to me and convinced me to join a special coaching class. From then onwards she used to teach me and I slowly started gaining confidence in myself. Whatever the subject was she would patiently explain it to me and this helped me a lot.
I became more punctual and regular at school. I have not only completed my SSC but have a graduate’s degree in science. After that I got married and my in-laws helped me to complete a diploma in pharmacy. I scored a distinction in pharmacy and from then I have been working for Apollo Group for the past sixteen months.

Now I’m educated and a successful woman. I never gave up hope in this world and if one door of success is closed then hundred different doors will open.
