Hi! My name is Aashvi Shah, currently studying in 12th grade at Fountainhead School, Surat and trying to survive IB! Out of all the good sayings, my personal favourite, which I always believe and follow is, staying positive. I feel staying positive really helps us eradicate negativity from our lives.
My area of talents are dancing and sports. I have been learning dance since childhood. I feel dancing helps me lighten my mood and bring positivity in my life. It also helps me pass my time which I would have otherwise spent on damaging my eyes by binge watching a show. Well, that’s just an extra benefit that comes with dancing. Similarly, I feel sports has always been my forte. I have always been so excited about participating at sports day at school and for PS classes. My favourite games have to be badminton, basketball and athletics. I have been learning badminton for the past 6-7 years. Not only the excitement but my self-confidence has always helped me secure a good position in any sports competition.
Well there are a variety of things that I enjoy doing. From cycling to simply relaxing, I love it all! The lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic has helped me understand the importance of enjoying the present rather than worrying about what’s done or what’s going to happen. During the lockdown, I could allocate time to things that I absolutely love such as, cooking, cycling, dancing and of course, watching new web series!
My ideal outlook on life is a mixture of positivity and negativity. As Germany Kent said, ¨“Any day above ground is a good day. Before you complain about anything, be thankful for your life and the things that are still going well.” Being grateful for everything that I have in my life is the best outlook I could have had ever. Moreover, there are no bad or good people, it’s the circumstances which forces one to act in such a way.
Lastly, as a part of my future, I really wish to explore the field of psychology. I feel psychology is ¨why¨ behind a person’s behaviour, decisions and thoughts. Knowing why the person did/think/decided a particular thing is always something I have been interested in. Moreover, I believe that exploring the field of psychology will not only allow me to help others but, myself too. I think with more knowledge, I will be able to take care of myself more appropriately than I am able to right now hence, I would love to explore the field of psychology.
