Tamana is a shy and quiet student. She always works hard in class and would do anything to help other students, her teachers and her family. She has two younger siblings who she often helps to take care of and plays with since her family moved from Jajjar, a small town in Haryana. Her grandparents still live there and used to help take care of the younger children. The family don’t have much money, they rent a general store in Shankar Vihar.She previously studied at the Cambridge school, where she as doing well in English and Maths, but the fees became too expensive. She continues to study hard at Literacy India, and her teacher Komal is very proud of her achievements, but is on erne about how shy she is.She lacks a lot of confidence, which could be helped by taking part in some additional clubs do activities such as theatre or dance. At the moment her only hobby is studying. She tames home work she has done in class to practice and make she knows things perfectly. Despite this diligence in her studies she lacks confident in speaking out, sharing her answers, group work, and making friends.
Komal, her teacher is encouraging her by including more class activities that encourage public speaking, and interacting with other students. This has begun recently and will hopefully make a positive change in the coming weeks and months building her participation in a range of different activities, and helping her to meet more confident so she can fulfil her ideas of becoming a teacher or a tailor.
