    Changing Mindsets ...
    Setting new standards
    Today I am seen as a role model by the other girls
    in my village,who seek to pursue professional education.
    -Apoorva P Bhat
    Apoorva today is a role model in her village. She works in an MNC in Bangalore and supports her family in building a dream house. Parents of girl children ask her advise in sending their daughters to professional courses outside their village. This was not always the case. “ I decided to pursue engineering at Bangalore when the norm in my village was to send girls to nearby degree colleges or get them married. I wanted to show everybody that a girl can be a successful professional and also take care of family.”
    Vidyadhan scholarship enabled her to pursue that dream and gave her confidence about reaching her goal. The transition to a Bangalore engineering college was not easy given she studied in Kannada medium at school. “The training given by Vidyadhan helped me a lot to be a confident speaker and face interviews successfully”. Apoorva is also a talented Yakshagana artist who has performed across Karnataka.
