A 16-year-old tribal girl, Asha Gond will fly off to United Kingdom to study English in an Oxford School. The young talent has shown her extreme interest in English, and with the support of her teacher, she will be soon travelling in the next one or two months.
Who is Asha Gond?
- She is from Janwaar village in state's Panna district
- She has done her schooling from Manohar Kanya High School
- Sharing her plans with Hindustan Times, she said, "I am very excited. I don't know what UK is like but I will definitely make the most of it. I am not at all scared and will give my best."
Support from a German woman, Ulrike Reinhard
The dream became reality when a German woman supported and convinced her parents to let her go. "Asha did very well in the English course during our summer camp in June last year. So I promised her to take her to UK to learn English. Initially her parents Dharmraj and Kamala Gond were reluctant in allowing her to go abroad and it took me eight months to convince them to let her go," said Ulrike Reinhard
Asha belongs to a very simple family where both her parents work in the field.
Sharing her future plans, she said, I will keep reading and will try to make other children read too."
Well, we wish all the best to this kid!
