I have always believed that life is about challenging oneself and living outside one’s comfort zone. From the very beginning, my focus has been on trying to develop myself holistically. Be it music or national exams, I have tried my hand at everything I could without the fear of failure. A consistent high performer, I have been regularly looked upon as a high perform and have also been recognized as the Student of the Year. As I get a deeper understanding of the Law, I wish to use my knowledge to ensure justice for the people who deserve it and create more awareness among the general public about the importance and relevance of law in day-to-day life.
