Nida Khanam (Batch Of 2016)

I pursued my primary education from Shafique Memorial School. A large part of my primary education was in Urdu medium. I got to know about the MSOSA scholarship program through a newspaper advertisement and applied for the same with the hope of changing the landscape of my academic life and my career ahead.

I passed the written test followed by an interview and to my good luck, I was one of the five students who were selected for the scholarship in 2009. My education at Modern was fully sponsored by Mr. Chander M. Lall.

I initially struggled academically owing to the complete change in the language medium but eventually went on to get the highest marks in my stream and set an all-time record by securing 99% in the English language (something I initially struggled with the most)!

After completing my schooling at Modern, I went on to pursue Political Science Hons. from Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi University and was awarded the best student of Political Science for the year 2017.

Thereafter, I pursued law from Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi.

WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW : I am currently a practicing advocate, employed as an Associate with an Intellectual Property boutique law firm- Lall & Sethi.

MESSAGE TO THE TRUST :  Modern School and MSOSA Trust introduced me to a world of opportunities and endless possibilities. It truly empowered me and made me realise that I could dare to dream.

MESSAGE FOR THE SCHOLARS : Dream. Dream big and make it happen!
The limitations in your life are only in your head. There is nothing holding you back but yourself. Paint the world with your grit and perseverance. I am just a call away if you need anything. All the best!
