"I used to be a naughty kid who found it hard to sit in class and stay in one place for too long as I got bored easily. However, since I started participating in the activities during Sunita ma'am's class, I have found myself understanding the concepts better. Now, I eagerly wait for her to arrive each day, excited to know what activity she has in store for us. It's no longer a chore to attend class, but a fun and enjoyable experience."
