I've known Latha for close to 2 months now and i feel the confidence level is growing. Though my interactions with Latha have been largely confined on the phone, a certain comfort zone has been established.

From being a little hesitant at first, Latha has opened up narrating anecdotes of her life and slowly drawing me into her world.

Coming from a lower income group family has exposed Latha to the harsh realities of life- class discrimination being one of them.

However today after getting the oppurtunity to interact with the NalandaWay mentors her perception is changing. She is slowly breaking out of her shell of feeling discriminated. She's happy that there are people who are willing to listen to her, talk to her and help and guide her with her academic as well as personal life.
