This Haryana Topper Wants to Become Scientist like Stephen Hawking

By far, Haryana earned a bad reputation for its worst child sex ratio, the number of females per thousand males in the age group 0-6, that is deemed contrary to the spirit of the human race. Despite the state losing its sheen owing to all these factors, there are lots of positives to look forward when it comes to students’ futures.

It is good to see students from Haryana coming through with flying colours. One such student who made the headlines is ‘Heena’. The outstandingly talented girl has been the talk of the state for securing the first position in the State Board Class 12 result as she chipped in with 98.2% marks.

All the fruitful efforts Heena had put, she got the best reward in return. The first thing she did after knowing the results is she was so pumped up and then hugged her father. She then rushed to her nearby Government Senior Secondary School, Patel Nagar, Hisar, to distribute sweets to the school principal, teachers.

Following the footprints of legendary Stephen Hawking, the student of the Non-Medical stream is making every possible attempt so much so that she would become a scientist like him in the times to come. The tenaciously talented girl who still has a mountain to climb believes that she took the first step with grit and determination.

“I always followed Stephen William Hawking, who is my ideal and wanted to become a Scientist like him. I feel today after my results declared that, I stepped the first ladder to become Scientist,” Haryana topper told Hindustan Times.

Heena’s proud mother Pooja, homemaker, said that Heena was ranked sixth in her Class 10 board exams. She added further saying that Heena developed a habit of studying early in the morning. “My daughter is really a hard-working girl. She got 6th position in her class X examinations. After finishing her classes, she starts her studies for two hours and 3 hours, early in the morning.”

Heena’s father, Prem Kumar who plies his trade at the photo framing shop believes that his daughter will become a scientist one day. “I was making tea when the result announced she came shouting and hugged me. I am sure that my daughter will become a good scientist one day,” mother Pooja added.

The Youth wishes ‘Heena’ good luck for her future endeavours. Please feel proud to share her story to inspire others.
