Fast-tracking through Failure!

Sandeep, with his parents
Studying hard for the NEET entrance exam

We received a very inspiring letter from Sandeep, an RDF VAPV Junior College alumnus. Sandeep’s parents, daily wage labourers, worked hard to put him through school and college. They, along with his teachers always supported his dream of becoming a doctor. He was a college topper, scoring 961/1000. He studied hard, however he didn’t clear his first attempt at the NEET entrance exam. He says, “I learnt many things from this failure. I feel failures give us a better point of view and allow us to make a choice of being dejected or to use it as a stepping stone to success. Failure shows us where we can improve our weaknesses.” Wise words, indeed! This resilient spirit helped him succeed in his second attempt and he got a seat in Bachelor of Dental Surgery. He achieved his goal!

He says, “I believe hard word, perseverance and dedication were the key factors in my success and can help anyone. My parents and teachers always stood beside me to help me achieve my goals. RDF provided me a solid foundation which shaped my mind, setting me in the right direction. I know villagers need good healthcare, so after completing my course, I will hold free dental camps to help rural people.” We really admire Sandeep’s spirit and are proud of his inspiring journey.
