When you are growing up, you might have found too many stereotypes. Girls in particular in the Indian society need to go through a lot of different stereotypes. Right from the time they are born, they might find themselves picking the choices they may not love to have. So, what is the solution for all this dilemma?
The answer lies in breaking the stereotypes and choosing to embrace more than one shade. You need to believe in yourself and your choices if you love to embrace more than one shade, you should be willing to do so. There was a time when I was told that you could either be creative or nerdy. Right from the very beginning, I was forced to either pick one of the two.
It took me some time to come to the conclusion that nerds are creative too. I loved my textbooks, but I wanted to embrace my creative side too. This is why I decided to choose my and and I started working on my creative aspects along with the focus on my educational aspect too. When I was in standard 10, I had my board exam and my family members asked me to abandon my love for novels, poetry and even fiction. I was told that you could either be successful in your exam or you could go adrift and pick these lines. It was a very hard decision for me to make. But in the end, I realized that it is never about picking one of the two. If my passion lies in two diverse areas, I could always make it work and so I did. I went on to work upon the different ways by which I could integrate both my passion and I secured a very cool 90 percent in my boards and even completed my book challenge of reading 30 books a year. Apart from that, my poetry collection touched 50 poems the same year.
I chose my AND. You should too!
