For Sonia, a 17-year-old FFLV Sandipani Muni School student, living with difficulties has become an ordinary part of her life: however, no matter how hard these challenges have been, she has so far never been brought down by them. Since childhood, Sonia and her family have been facing extreme financial challenges. Her father sells small stuff for deities worship on the street with no fixed income: supporting a family of six members has been a rather impossible task. Sonia, being the eldest daughter in the family took a stand and decided to support her family by utilizing her skills and passion while taking her studies seriously.
She says,” Not everyone received the chance I got, Thank you FFLV. I promise to do my best and give the best outcomes of whatever I have gained. “
Since the end of 11th grade, Sonia has been working part-time as a Beautician and Mehendi (Henna) artist after school hours. She has completed her 12th grade and she now plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree course as soon as the college reopens. Her skills helped to strengthen the support system of her family during lockdown days when her father had almost no work. It is a source of satisfaction and pride for FFLV to witness how our girls are taking the initiative to reach their full potential and believe in their own strengths.
