Deepasri and her younger brother study on scholarships at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri. Her parents are not educated – her father is a two-wheeler mechanic and her mother is a tailor, but both their incomes put together are insufficient to fund the education of the siblings.
This class topper is now in Grade 10 and says that her teachers inspire her and have helped build her self-confidence. Deepasri's teachers are pleased with her performance, especially her English teacher who finds her a curious and promising learner, attentive in class, with no qualms about asking questions to clarify concepts and deepen her understanding.
Deepasri is grateful for the opportunity she got to develop new skills every day through different activities, maintain good health with Yoga, and also to exhibit her talent in sports. She has won prizes in athletics at the school and district levels and wants to pursue sports at college too.
She aspires to study B.Sc. in Nursing – inspired by the nurses whom she has seen at work in hospitals.
