Chandigarh: The Character Building Committee of Mehr Chand Mahajan DAV College for Women, Chandigarh, organised an online session titled ‘Overcoming the Summit Within’, with an aim to inspire students to strive to achieve their dreams despite the hurdles.

Ms. Shubhangi shared with the participants her journey from being a student in the college to going abroad for further studies; enlightening the participants about how she stayed focused on her goals despite the failures she had to face and she asserted that there is a lot of struggle and hard work which forms the backdrop of any successful endeavour.
Ms. Shubhangi reminded the participants of the importance of moving out of one’s comfort zone in order to evolve. She also warned the students against constantly seeking validation from outside as it is detrimental to one’s mental health.
