Sameer, who has been studying for a while in the school run for slum children, has shown immense talent.

His maths teacher Rohit, who is a volunteer at the Jesta Primary School run by Diwakar Gupta, told TYNews,”He really wants to learn. He is confident and studies regularly. I didn’t want his talent to be wasted. So, I requested for an interview with the principal of the Alphine Convent School here.”

 

During his first ever interview, that too where Sameer was asked to answer in English, he impressed everyone by his skills.

“The principal was impressed by him. He asked him tables, basic questions where he lives, how old is he and what does his parents etc, he answered them all fluently in English., He was so confident,” said Rohit.

“I love painting and drawing. I got no training. I do it myself by looking at picture sin books and advertisements displayed on the road,” he said.

He will soon join the regular classes at the school and is setting an example for other kids in the slum to pursue their dreams.
