Hi! My name is Tanishka and I’m 17 years old.People who do not know me think that I’m arrogant at times and a bit emotionless however it’s ironic because the ones who know me well and are close to me say that I’m extremely emotional and that there are rare times when I’m rude to them (except when I’m pissed off ,which I can get easily!).You know the kind of kids who teachers are tired of because they will talk irrespective of whosoever they sit with? Well that’s me! I love to talk and it’s pretty difficult for me to keep my mouth shut but when I do keep it shut there surely is some reason behind it.
People say that I’m good at dancing particularly due to my expression. I may not be the best at the sports I play ,however there are a few that I love to play such as badminton,basketball and swimming.

CAS is something that has brought a lot of positive change in me, from organising events to participating made me punctual. Completing cas activities and meeting the requirements was no less than a roller coaster. Completing all those activities made me realise a lot of things be it about myself or about the things around me. Savarkundla trip helped me in realising how important it is for us to save animal, my project taught me how difficult it is to deal in real world and actually convince people to agree.If it wasn’t for CAS i wouldn’t have ever thought of donating money that I earned for which I had put in 3 months of hard work.
The overall CAS experience has helped me a lot in understanding myself, my strengths and weaknesses and how I could improve it all. CAS also taught me how to help others and be ethical. At the end I would just say that i have grown as a person and I’m happy that I had CAS as a part of my DP experience.
