p { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 120%; }

It gives me immense pleasure to write in support of Rakhi Reddy's application for Young India Fellowship .She is a student at VIT University from 2011-2015 in the bachelor's programme. I am convinced that Rakhi will make an immediate positive contribution to your institute. As her co-ordinator in National Service Scheme I urge you to accept her application.

Rakhi is a joy to have for students of her class. She is smart and confident, yet humble. She is well-liked by her peers. During her junior year, she worked collaboratively with the Ministry of External Affairs , India as a campus ambassador for IndiAfrica: A Shared initiative. Her energetic nature and positive attitude gives delight to all the people working around her. She is a conscientious student and shows an excellent fund of knowledge and a willingness to go beyond the usual role of students, demonstrated by her numerous projects.

During my time with her in NSS there was an instance where we had too many classes to teach and very less strength of teachers. She actively worked with me to ensure that each class had a teacher which was quite a task as we had teachers for different subjects and a subject must not be repeated for a particular class. At the end of the camp it was very well executed by her and the team. Also she always made the class lively through her interactive sessions and made sure each student had a chance to express themselves, thats one of the things I admire about her.

Her dream is to serve in the civil services.Her desire is to connect with the people and fulfill her aim to serve the people. This led her to experience Jagriti Yatra 2014 an ambitious train journey of 450 aspiring youth to travel 8000 km across our nation visiting 12 destinations over a period of 15 days, meeting inspiring role models. In her words, this experience has tranformed her mindset and brought her out of her comfort zone. This makes me think that she is indeed very committed to her goals in life.

Ms. Rakhi's strength lies in her determination,because it takes tremendous mental power to overcome learning disability as a child. Her diligence, intellect and commitment to her dream are unmatched. Her greatest pleasure is to challenge herself that refines her day by day.I am sure her story would turn out to be an inspiration for a lot many in our country.

Rakhi is just the type of natural leader and well-rounded student who would be a welcome addition to any institute. But during the two years I have known her, she has continually expressed her heartfelt desire to be a YIF fellow. I truly hope that her dream is realized. I have rarely found such passionate people among my peers even.

In summary, I would strongly recommend her for your fellowship program. Please let me know if you can benefit from any further insights into Rakhi's experience and character. I know she will excel at the fellowship. Please do not hesitate to contact me on my contact number. My best wishes are always with her.
