An Inspiring Story Of Teenage Girl Who Worked As A Maid, Yet Scored 85% in Class 12

Updated on 7 September, 2019 at 2:07 pm By

She is just a 17-year-old girl but the kind of work she does to support her family and her education will inspire you. Shalini, despite working as a maid in more than five houses, has scored 85 per cent in the second Pre-university courses (PU) exam, reports Bangalore Mirror.

Shalini, who hails from Bangalore, cleaned bathrooms and scrubbed utensils, did cooking and nursing, while juggling studies. She never complained and said that her family is more important to her.



 

Shalini had studied in Tamil medium from class one to seven, when she was shifted to Kannada medium till tenth standard. She was shifted to English medium for her PU studies at SGPTA-Deeksha College. If coping with frequent changes in the medium was not daunting enough, there were bigger challenges on the home front too.

Shalini’s father had been bedridden for over a decade after falling off a building. Her mother took up work as a housemaid in several houses which left Shalini to run the show in her own house, doing everything from cooking to cleaning. But it just got worse, when her younger brother was diagnosed with third stage blood cancer.

With her mother spending most of the day tending to her brother, Shalini had to take up her mother’s jobs. Explaining her schedule, Shalini said:

“I wake up around 4.30 am. After finishing my household chores, I rush to five houses close by where my job is to sprinkle water and draw Rangoli. The work ends by 7.30 am and then I head to another house to wash clothes. I am relatively free by 9 am and go home to prepare for CET. My study, coupled with my household chores, ends by 12.30 pm when it’s time to step out again for two more jobs. I come back by 4.30 pm and have time till 6 pm to study. Then I have to go another house for chores and I come back at night”

Despite her family condition, nothing could deter her from studying. She utilised her free time, devoted every minute she got to studies. Her teacher Prathap Naidu said that no matter what, she always has a smile on her face. She is now preparing for the Common Entrance Test.
