Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello everyone! I am Yash Goyal and I am currently in my second year of an automotive design college. It has been my dream to learn about cars and transportation design since I was in middle shool. Initally it was hard to achieve this dream because I was really poor with my academics and this dream almost shattered when my family said they wouldn’t let me pursue it unless I score atleast 60% in my final year board exams. It was tough for me as my elder brothers were the toppers of the school, I was under a lot of pressure but I never gave up. I knew I have to give everything I have in this fight so that I can pursue my dream. I am happy to tell you that I ended up scoring 78% in my final year exams and I also got in the college I was aiming for. Now I am the topper of my whole batch and I can finally say that this experience taught me so much about how important that never giving up attitude is. Anyone can change their life if they have a fighting spirit like mine.
