I joined VIDYA-NIOS (Open School) after having a gap of 18 years in education. I did my 7th class in 1999 but could not pursue secondary education due to financial and family problems. I got married in 2009 and have two sons. I was always keen on continuing education.
I was not financially stable. I soon realized that I need to support my husband and my son’s education. And this could not have been done without further education. I came to know about VIDYA’s Open School program through one of the Open School teachers. They encouraged me to continue and complete the education. I joined in 2018 and cleared 10th in first attempt with a score of 61%. I could have scored more but I have to look after my family as well.
I managed my education and household work. All the pressure and hectic schedules did not get in my way in completing education. I am continuing 12th grade with Open School and set a benchmark of 70%. During Pandemic, I opened her own idli and mendu vada stall to help my husband financially.
