Nisha Gupta joined VIDYA, Bal Vihar primary school, New Delhi in Nursery, her father is a vegetable vendor and her mother is homemaker. She is one of two sisters and has one brother. Right from the beginning, Nisha had a passion to study and she always stood first in class. Her elder sister has, with the help from Bal Vihar, got admission to Manav Bharti School. Nisha’s father wanted her to study in a public school as well. He filled the form of Saint Anthony School and Nisha was called there for a written test. There were 16 other children from various public schools of Delhi who wanted to get admitted in standard V, but the school only had five seats. Nisha scored so well on the test that the school authorities preferred her and admitted her immediately. For a child of a vegetable vendor – to reach that level is truly an achievement.  She has completed her 12th std. in commerce stream with 98% marks. She wants to get her graduation in Economic Honors from Delhi University.

Words from Nisha Gupta – 

My greetings to each and every member of the VIDYA Family.

I am Nisha Gupta, an ex- student of VIDYA. With great pleasure, I would like to tell everyone that I recently cleared my 12th board examinations with an overall percentage of 98% securing the first position in my school, St Anthony’s Sr Secondary School!

After completing my 4th standard from VIDYA, I joined St Anthony’s School. My father is a vendor and mother, a homemaker. I have an elder sister who too is an Ex-Vidya student. 

In this revolutionised era, where everything seems to be turned into a profit-making business, institutions like VIDYA keep up my faith in humanity and charity. 

The selfless devotion of each and every member towards their work motivates the children like me to make the best of the opportunities given. 

I’m willing to pursue Economic Hons from Delhi University and I’m sure with constant support and guidance from my teachers and parents, I’ll definitely be able to achieve my goal. 

I would like to sincerely thank my teachers and parents for their immense support in this journey.
