A CBSE Class 12 from Kolkata, displayed tremendous grit to sit through the rest of the exam following a suicide attempt during the English paper on February 22, she bravely continued her exams, eventually achieving an admirable first division with a commendable 63%. Reflecting on her journey, she stated, 'Giving Up Not An Option'.
Encouraged by her teachers and family, she found the strength to persevere. Her school, Aditya Birla Academy, played a crucial role in providing counselling and encouragement, helping her overcome her struggles, the incident was reported by TOI.
"When I came back, it was a new me," said the girl. "I was confident and felt better. I conquered and survived," she said.
Her courageous decision to return to the exam hall after facing such adversity paid off when she received her results. Grateful for the unwavering support of her teachers and family, she attributed her success to their encouragement and guidance. "We are immensely grateful to the teachers and the principal of the school. They motivated our daughter and helped us to motivate her even more after seeing everyone support her so much," her father said.
Despite her previous academic achievements, the student faced additional challenges due to the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. “No one talks about the effect of the lockdown on students. She dropped Class XII in 2022 and was admitted to Aditya Academy. I was asked not to sit for the boards, as every time I tried writing a paper, I would faint,” she said.
Now, with the support of her parents, teachers, and mental health professionals, she looks ahead with optimism. She plans to pursue a career in science and hopes to pursue an MBA eventually. Her journey serves as an inspiration and a reminder of the importance of mental health support for students facing academic challenges.
