And the 12th year she did not make it to IIT Bombay her dream college. This was the year when all her confidence and all her achievements did not make any difference of the past.Was not sure what she really wanted in her life and found everything futile.Then she realized that she was found of chemical industries and was in love with the business world.So some how managed to make it for the chemical engineering branch in the same city she lived in. On 14 August 2015 there was this orientation program of LEAD Deshpande Foundation at the college just out of curiosity attended it and then it clicked .The journey started!The journey started!
