Haritha Chennaiah, daughter of a sanitation worker from Telangana, Hyderabad has overthrown all the obstacles to ensure a high rank in JEE 2020. The 17-year-old has procured 1187th rank in the very reputed JEE Advanced examination. She is the first person from her family to have earned such an accomplishment.
Haritha is a devoted student of the Telangana Welfare Residential School in Gowlidoddi. She said that she used to study for 16 hours a day to clear her engineering exams. On the result declaration day, due to internet issues, she couldn’t check her results. She got to know about her brilliant performance from her teachers when they called her up to congratulate.
She dedicated her success to the Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS) that renders education, food, and clothes, free of cost to 268 social welfare schools. Nearly 1.5 lakh students from standard 5th and above are being benefitted from this endeavour. On her splendid success, Ajith Reddy, CEO of Secunderabad Cantonment Board awarded her on October 9th.
She said, “I am very grateful that I could get free training for the JEE examinations at my own school. My parents were unable to pay for a basic tutoring centre. Instead of weak economic conditions, my parents never demotivated me and my three younger sisters from studying more and intending for higher aims.” Also Read: School on Wheels: Chhattisgarh teacher uses motorcycle for ‘mohalla’ classes to educate students
