Hearing Impaired Girl is CBSE Class 12 Topper in Special Category
A hearing impaired girl from Gurgaon is the CBSE class 12 topper in special category.
Hearing impaired student Lavanya Balakrishnan is the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) class 12 topper in the persons with disabilities category. With 97.3 per cent marks, the Gurgaon girl wants to pursue a career in designing. A student of the Heritage School, Gurgaon, Balakrishnan has scored 100 in political science.
"I love the subject but I want to pursue a career in designing. I always made it a point to not study beyond six hours a day but I adopted the policy throughout the year rather than just struggling before the exams," she told PTI.
Balakrishnan, who is hearing impaired since birth, credited her mother for motivating her to work hard. "She always motivates me. I have never felt that there is a disability and I am incapable of something," she said.
CBSE announced the class 12 results on 2 May.
