SANGJUKTA ROY CHOWDHURY

It has been 8 years! And somehow when I sat down to write my story today, every memory feels so vivid, so fresh. Our lives in St. Anthony’s Girls School were so full of adventures. There was not a single dull day. We were young, full of life and made the most out of our time in school. My batch mates are a group of extremely promising, smart, intelligent, challenging, competent, competitive, humble and sweetest people I have ever had the good fortune to meet. We complimented each other and helped each other grow in ways we were completely unaware of. It sounds cliché but I also did find a best friend for life in this school.

I always considered myself an average student in life, did not have a plan and much expectations from Board exams and life after Anthony. This feeling ended during my last year in school. I could see the efforts of my teachers and mentors creating the most astounding impact in shaping my life. I scored extremely well in my 10th Boards and the score continues to grace my professional resume till date. All the hard work, all the years of staying away from home, all the cold winter morning coaching classes finally made sense. The school had become a safe haven by then. I left school with a goal, a direction in life, a purpose, friends and mentors I could trust.

I completed my 12th Boards (ISC) from Loreto Convent in Darjeeling because St. Anthony’s school did not have 11th and 12th standards back then. I scored even higher this time and I headed straight to New Delhi for my Under-graduation. I was lucky to get into Miranda House, University of Delhi, for a course in Political Science Honors. Just when I thought I left precious Anthony’s days behind, I discovered that my classmate from Anthony’s Girls School is enrolled in the same course, in the same college too (completely uncoordinated!). Miranda House and the city of Delhi taught me a great deal about competition, survival and evolving as a person. Life was not always easy but I was young and wanted to explore. I was a good student and wanted to experiment with my hobbies. I took up photography and print modeling for a few months. But soon realized this is not what I want to do. It was then that I took up a summer internship in Assam and worked for an NGO called Maitri Purbanchal Development Society. This was my first exposure to the world of the development sector in India and there was no looking back.

Ora et Labora.
