When I was in school, I was unhappy I thought I had no extraordinary talent. I was neither a nerd who scored the highest grades in my class nor the talented all-rounder in extra curricular activities nor a sports person nor a singer/performer and off course not one among the most beautiful and popular girls. I danced only once in a group song of 54 students and was in the last line. I scored average marks and never ever sang a song. When I ran , even in small groups I always came last. I had very few friends and neither my presence nor absence made a difference
I was just an ORDINARY girl.
During my college days I read somewhere that all great people believed in " Doing ordinary things EXTRAORDINARILY". I started reading more about the journey of people, celebrities, authors whom I looked up to. I read more about their past before they reached the pinnacle of success. Their journey inspired me and gave me an inner strength. In this process I found answers to many of my unasked questions.
Yes I was too scared to ask anything then and now I can answers anything you ask fearlessly !
After attending around 6 to 8 auditions I was selected for the main lead in an Tamil movie 4 years ago in Jan 2010. Why I didn't do it, is another series of posts, till then you can keep guessing. I secured Distinction in all my Engineering Exams( B.E in Electronics and Communication) and did score 80% in my Masters ( M.E in Digital Electronics ) while I was working too. I would work Monday to Friday full time, and attend classes on weekends. Its my dream to get a Phd, the last degree on my list!
Some friends who know me, who really know me keep saying that am extraordinary and am gifted and a very talented person etc... I can keep my hand on my heart and say "I am just an ORDINARY girl, there is nothing extraordinary about me. I strongly believe I am extraordinarily ORDINARY. I am just like the other millions of girls who saw EVERY PROBLEM as AN OPPORTUNITY."
