Young Lady whose Dad is a Farmer becomes first graduate in her village, gets juicy job
A Young lady has become a celebrity in her immediate community.
A record that existed in community history has shattered the academic and career success of the young woman.
Shobha Katuru in a LinkedIn post stated that the young Lady was the first person to finish graduation and get an IT job in her village.
Shobha whose father is a farmer said in her village it is a norm for ladies to be married off when they clocked 10 but she wasn’t having that.
The lady struggled to acquire knowledge against all odds.
With help from her who convinced her parents to ensure she furthers her studies and thanks to an old phone, Shobha enrolled in online learning.
Her post read in part:
“In my village, girls are married off right after 10th.
“But I wanted more from life.
“My father is a farmer. We live in a small village in AP.
“I was the 1st ranker in 10th Class in my entire Mandal. With my results, I got a free college seat. My uncle convinced my parents of my further studies.
“During the pandemic, I joined an online course and started studying at home.
“I didn’t have a laptop, so I used an old phone. Internet connection was weak in the village in the evenings. So, I used to wake up early, go to the terrace for better signals and finish my classes by afternoon.
“During interviews, my cousin lent me his phone and data pack.
“People didn’t understand my stubbornness for studying. They thought it’s useless for a girl.
“But, they no longer think this way.
“Because, for the first time in my village, a girl graduated and got an IT job.”
