Samvarthini G. 24 years old: I’m studying at Art and Design, and I dream of becoming a good art teacher because of the simple and down to earth way of our lufe. My reason for choosing teaching as my life profession is because I’m very fond of children. I can give them knowledge about different things and I can help the little ones in drawing and painting. By doing this I will give my country better human beings for tomorrow and they will be the assets of our country.
