Dharshana said despite the physical challenge she was motivated to put in her best and expressed gratitude to her parents and teachers for not putting pressure on her.
"My general principle is that I like to do my best in whatever I do. So when I started preparing for Class XII examination, I decided I should do my best, whatever I could. Keeping that in my mind I started preparing.
"For reading, I used a magnifying glass. I got good support from my school and my parents. They did not create any fear in my mind about the exam and motivated me and instilled confidence that I could do well," she said.
Dharshana, a commerce stream student who scored 483 marks out of 500, said she needs to use the magnifying glass to read small texts.
She now wants to study commerce and become an entrepreneur, while also developing her music skills.
"I want to pursue B Com in Chennai and after that become an entrepreneur. I also want to develop my music talent," Dharshana, who is honing her skills in Carnatic music, said.
