Tell us about a teacher who had a real impact on your life, either for the better or the worse. How is your life different today because of him or her?
There are many teachers who are my mentor. My school teachers and my college professors. I cannot choose any one. I trust them more than God probably. What I am today is because of their teachings.
School teachers always encouraged me. I was good in academics as well as in extra curricular activities. Most teachers in school ‘knew’ me. I am very happy and feel proud about it. Even today after 16 years they recognize me, what more I can wish for. I was really a teachers pet.
Very few college professors know me by my name, but they do recognize me. They all taught me to believe in what I am doing and learning. When I look at them, they inspire me to never give up on what I have learned. Never regret it. They taught me life is tough but living it is not impossible.
