Belinda, who has joined LPU study programme covering long distance of thousands from Imphal in Manipur, shares: “Presently, I am overwhelmed with extreme joys! Being a technology student, I had never thought to be the winner of such a prestigious event. It is all due to the inspiration and motivation from my teachers at LPU. Prior to this during my school days I had never participated in such events. LPU identified true me in myself and let me proceed on to the top of the podium. After all the grooming and training that I and other participants received through LPU mentors during the preparatory hours is highly appreciable. I love my LPU from the core of my heart.” Similar are the views of the other winner Navjot, who hails from Bathinda in Punjab. She shares that they are now close to the zenith of success by winning preliminary crown.
