Teachers are one of the greatest people you come across in your life. They are not only the selfless givers but also the mentors in your life. I would like to thank Arpeeta ma’m for creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have her as my teacher. She has treated her job not like a profession but her passion. She has been a teacher who never showed me the way, instead taught me how to search for it myself. She has been not just a teacher but a parent to me. No amount of thanks will be enough for all that she has done for me. I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person. Without her, I would have been lost. She has inspired me to do better in life and guided me throughout. Thanks for being a true mentor.

There are people who come into our lives and leave a burning sensation that lights up inside each of us. In my life there is a Ravi Lekhwani Sir, who I met twelve years ago. He has had the biggest impact in my life and has kept this feeling of hope inside me.
I am able to look into the mirror and, for one of the first times ever, be proud of the person that I am. You believed in me, and that’s all that I really needed. You took the time to care, and not only that, but you made sure that I knew you cared. That has made the difference.
I remember one incident. I went for an interview and because of low confidence I was not able to complete the task they had given me. I felt disheartened and felt like a loser. In place of going home, I went to my computer teacher at the institute. He ask me to do the same project which tha interviewer had given me and I failed. He tried to boost me and remarked that “being disheartened can’t make you a winner. If you want to be a winner, then keep rolling.” His words had done a motivational magic and pumped a lot of confidence in myself, resulting in me getting my dream job at the leading university as a computer lecturer.
We will probably never forget that person because we owe a little part of our identity, who we truly are, to them. Without them we might never have become the person we are today.
