A Tale of Courage: Tanushree Rana’s Journey from Adversity to Academic Brilliance with Yuva Unstoppable’s Support
New Delhi (India), November 29: In the bustling city of Pune, Maharashtra, the story of Tanushree Rana unfolds – a tale of resilience, determination, and the transformative power of education. Tanushree, currently a student in the Science stream with a specialization in computer science in Std. XI, exemplifies the strength of character that can emerge even in the face of extreme adversity.
Life took an unexpected turn for Tanushree during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her mother, already grappling with health issues, saw a further deterioration in her condition, ultimately succumbing to the virus. Tanushree, just months away from her Std. X board exams, faced not only the immense personal loss but also the daunting challenge of navigating her academic journey without the guidance and emotional support of her mother.
Undeterred by the emotional turmoil and the difficult circumstances at home, Tanushree displayed remarkable courage and academic prowess. Against all odds, she secured an impressive 94% inher Std. X exams, a testament to her unwavering determination and intellectual capabilities. It’s important to note that she achieved this without the luxury of guidance or tuition, showcasing her innate brilliance and capabilities.
However, the financial burden on Tanushree’s family loomed large. Her father, a vegetable vendor and daily wage earner, struggled to make ends meet with an annual income of just INR 90,000. The loss of Tanushree’s mother, who contributed to the household income through part-time work, further exacerbated the financial challenges.
In a poignant move to secure her education, the family decided to sell the mother’s jewellery to pay for Tanushree’s college fees. It was during this difficult period that a school teacher, recognizing Tanushree’s potential and the financial strain on her family, recommended the Yuva Unstoppable scholarship programme.
Tanushree, grateful for this lifeline, underwent the entrance interview for the scholarship and was awarded INR 50,000 to cover all her education expenses for a year. Speaking about the impact of Amitabh Shah founded Yuva Unstoppable on her life, Tanushree shares, “I am grateful to Yuva Unstoppable for helping students like me who want to study further and make a life for themselves. Our circumstances should not dictate our life’s final outcome”. The scholarship not only alleviated the financial burden but also provided the emotional support that Tanushree needed during this challenging period.
Beyond her personal journey, Tanushree recognizes the importance of extending a helping hand to other deserving students facing similar challenges. She envisions a future as a computer engineer, inspired by the crucial role technology played during the pandemic. Tanushree is determined not only to build her own path but also to contribute to the journey of others through the Yuva Unstoppable scholarship programme.
Amitabh Shah, Founder of Yuva Unstoppable, emphasizes, “Scholarships at Yuva Unstoppable are not about financial aid, they are opportunities for deserving students, a chance for them to fulfil their dreams”. Amitabh Shah believes in the ripple effect of scholarships, where one act of support can shape not just an individual’s future but the trajectory of communities and society at large.
