#PeopleOfDonatekart: Meet Dolly Aswani

“When I look back at school and college, it’s been filled with ups and downs. I wasn’t a great student and until the eighth grade, my marks were below average. I got bullied a lot for that and for how I looked. Everyone else around me was pretty and smart, and I would come to school with braids and oil in my hair. I didn’t mind that, I didn’t mind who I was. But everyone around me did. When the bullying got too much, I realised I had to do something… I had to show people that I’m capable too. I put in the hard work, I studied and I topped my district in class 9 and 10. That’s when I knew that I was a resilient person. It built my confidence and braced me for what was to come.
