[ Working at a Reputed Hospital ]
I came to Ashalayam in the year 2003 from Howrah railway station through Childline. I was staying with my aunt. She didn’t like me very much or care for me; so I had to leave the place. I was roaming in Howrah Station when I was rescued and sent to DBA. While in DBA, I completed Madhyamik in 2014 in first division and Class XII in 2016 also in first division. Thereafter I was admitted to graduate nursing course in St Augustine Medical College, Assam. I successfully completed my nursing in 2019 and presently working in a reputed hospital as a nurse. While I was in DBA I learnt many things apart from school subjects; had plenty of opportunities for games, dance and life skills. I will always remember these throughout my life. I am in admiration and appreciation of all the Fathers, Sisters, Sponsors and Staffs for helping me to become an independent and responsible person.
