Stories of success
  The story of Sandya Priyanka is an inspiring one. An alumnus of Project Nanhi Kali, Sandya currently works as an Assistant Engineer (Civil Sector) in the Municipal Corporation. She comes from a middle class family and lives with her mother and sister. Sandya lost her father in 2012, and since then her mother Rukmini has been supporting the family solely with the income she earns from the pan shop that she manages. Sandya became a Nanhi Kali in 2006 and was with the project for three years. She was a studious child and attended her classes regularly. Along with this she always made time to help her mother in the pan shop after school hours and used all the free time she got to concentrate on her academics. She won the Best Student Award in class IX and in class X she secured an impressive score of 503 which got her selected for the C M R Pratibha Award. Her diligence and hard work enabled her to secure admission in the Nujiveedu Campus for IIIT (B Tech Civil Branch).

A girl with immense potential and grit, Sandya always dreamed of becoming an engineer, and she is extremely grateful to Project Nanhi Kali for helping her achieve her goal. Her next goal in life is to clear the civil service examinations and she has now begun her preparations to become an IAS officer.
