Struggles and hardships have always been a part of Sunita’s young life but her neversay-die attitude has helped her tide over the toughest of challenges. She lost her father at a very early age and the family copes with the added hardship of her brother’s physical disability. Yet, Sunita did not let such trying circumstances obstruct her path towards achieving excellent results at her school.
Sunita’s quiet determination won her the admiration and unconditional support of all her teachers. Their constant encouragement helped her excel at both academic and sporting activities and she successfully graduated from her Satya Bharti School in Class V. Her strong desire to pursue higher studies made her family look for options where she could avail of a free but high quality education, much like her alma mater.
During this pursuit they learnt of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya selection, an entrance exam that would make her eligible for free education at a residential school. With her eye on the prize and the support of her Satya Bharti teachers, she prepped hard for the entrance exams and cleared them with flying colours. Once the financial burden of her education was accounted for, Sunita was able to set her focus back on her passion for sports.
Her growing inclination towards Kho-Kho made her pursue it with diligence, as a result of which she not only secured a spot in the National Kho-Kho team but also winning an award for ‘Best Player’ at a tournament in Goa. Awards and accolades, however, have only grounded Sunita; her peers and teachers validate her nature as a humble child in spite of her outstanding achievements.
Sunita is the pride of her family and even today they cite her as an example of how she managed to balance her household duties along with studies and Kho-Kho. Sunita is happy that she has been able to make the right decision and remains thankful to the support of her family and teachers. She dreams of pursuing a career in Sports and bringing medals and honour to her community.
