Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. Stories are something that hones our mind to the world of possibilities and opportunities.

The story of Sherwood high’s Topper for academic year 19-20 Ms.Prajna Ranganath is inspiring enough to propel anyone to excel, and her techniques might help you notch up the score.

Our young and charming Prajna Ranganath topped the ICSE board with 98% percent marks. Prajna’s zest immensely personified her vision, for the little she expected had left her startled by pride. This could be the mastery over expectation as she believed to get the best 96% percent.

She profoundly indulged herself to the extreme of every possibility. Math and physics endured as her favourite subject as she had productivity for numbers hence preferred to work on problems as the depths method is quietly peculiar in solving problems and it increased her incitement to achieve more.

Prajna is grateful to her parents, teachers, friends, and so on for being a part of her academic goal as they stood, as firm as a pillar while she built her dream. She believes that only a handful of people are as lucky as she is to get the best of parents, friends, and teachers.

“The influence of a good teacher can never be erased”, undeniably prajna is more indebted to her teachers at school who were impeccable for her success.

Teachers are the root who brings out every possibility in a child. Prajna’s teachers were exceedingly helpful throughout; undoubtedly they followed the wisest method of clearing the entire doubts that immensely favoured the entire class before stepping onto any new topics.

Her stimulus nature and incitements have always helped her. Hence she gripped everything significantly and worked thoroughly. Even before the boards could approach she maintained the base level methods of scheduling work according to the pre-planned timetables where she would spend on an average of 6 to 7 hours maximum on studies or a minimum of 1 to 2 hours as a fact of every lesson that spiked her interest.

Perspicuously all of these factors emphasises how far she engaged herself with books. This girl had clear insight on the methods she adapted to study; hence she balanced everything systematically where the first priority was in reading out every chapter in depth, highlighting the key points and finally working on the questions. Together with math and physics she read all illustrations, concepts, formulas, and questions comprehensively and would approach her teachers if anything went beyond her understanding.

Even after having a tight schedule, she still had space for hobbies. Painting and reading were always a part of her life where in reading strengthens the brain and painting reduces the stress, hence Prajna always preferred thriller and mystery genre in her top reading lists where the ‘Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak is one among her favourite. Apart from painting, what brings calm to the mind is Zentangle doodling, which is a creation of structured patterns, that increases self-confidence, relieves stress and anxieties, taking back to her love of structures and figures.

To be a scientist or an engineer is something she adheres to the most and would ultimately be a part of the aerospace field. She always believed in setting up goals and challenges. Prajna Ranganath’s current top most prior goals are to clear Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) and the IIT examination, for which she is leaving no stone unturned.

But a role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration. His or her very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt saying, “Yes, someone like me can do this”. Harriet Tubman, the one who flawlessly followed every plan cum principle and worked towards her vision, had remarkably influenced and idealised Prajna’s life with her larger-than-life vision.

Prajna Ranganath enjoys reaching to the stars by staying indoors and having quality time with family as she is not an athletic person, like Pamela Vaull Starr said, “Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”

Prajna Ranganath’s story implies well on the effort and support received from Sherwood high, as the firm belief everyone holds in the attainment of effective base from school and precise encouragement can help every student get through barriers hence practice and dedication is needed to be built throughout the run. Tomorrow another Indian will set out the nation with dignity and remarkable inspiration as this determined soul is all set for her future.

Sherwood High’s Management, teachers and the entire staff congratulates for her remarkable achievement and hopes that one day she would soar high in the field of aerospace and bring the glory to our nation for every little hope they had in this charm never failed in dignifying their every effort in building up the best through her hence this is Prajna Ranganath’s journey to success and there’s a long way to go.

Go high, girl!
