Try.Fail.Repeat.Succeed: J RajShekar Reddy
”Where there’s a will there is a way.”
J. Rajshekhar Reddy, 23 years old lost his eyesight at the age of 11, despite that, nothing could stop him to chase his dream to become a Chartered Accountant.
He was born in an economically weak family in Guntur, and considering the challenges faced by him, Rajshekhar Reddy stands to be ideal for everyone who aims at clearing the examination. He recorded lectures, attended classes at various institutions, used text-to-speech software to make notes.
Five years of hard work and struggles were finally paid off when he cleared the exam on the second attempt.
”There were many, including my mother, who thought that it was impossible for a person like me to clear the examination, but I never felt discouraged and I used to study for hours at a stretch for the exam, not just to clear it, but to prove that a visually challenged can accomplish whatever he wants,” said Mr. Reddy, when he was interrogated about the hurdles, and how he conquered them.
The journey was not easy, and there were added twists and turns that made it more difficult. He also said that ” The profession of CA is an honored post in the society and I was motivated to pursue it. My father works as an electrician and my mother is a homemaker. It is a little difficult for them to comprehend the sense of my achievement. In fact looking at the jitters I was going through before my result was declared. My mother was worried because I chose a profession that caused stress and wanted me to relax at home,” said RajShekhar Reddy.
Irrespective of any professional course or challenges, if you are sure about what you want, nothing can stop you.
