Shrawni Mandke: Jack of All Trades and Master of All!

Team StoryWeavers|June 12, 2019| 55

Are you a voracious reader? How many books do you read in a day? Team Storyweavers recently spoke to a budding bibliophile – Shrawni Pawan Mendke from Indore. A student of BYJU’S – The Learning App, Shrawni’s story on how she fell in love with books, developed a taste for art and became a smart learner left us wanting to know more about this enterprising student.

14-year-old Shrawni’s day begins at 4 am and goes on till 12 pm!

We asked Shrawni the secret behind such a dedicated routine. “My mom! She inspires me to work hard and give my best in everything – be it academics or co-curricular activities,” she says.  

A student of many interests

Shrawni’s interests are varied. She loves sports and has a large appetite for books. “I love reading books. They let me wander into a different time and space, teach me about various cultures and give me wings to explore the world. So, I spend a lot of  my time reading. And, that’s how I end up reading many books,” giggles Shrawni.

Shrawni’s Top Picks

  • Stephen Hawking – My Brief History by Stephen Hawking
  • My Life In My Words by Rabindranath Tagore
  • Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
  • Hamlet by William Shakespeare
  • Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Speaking about sports, Shrawni says, “I vividly remember the summer vacation when I learned to hold a badminton racket and hit a shuttlecock over the net. That day, I discovered a new interest and it soon became a regular evening activity for me. Later, my dad enrolled me in a professional class.” These classes have certainly paid off. Shrawni recently won a gold medal in an inter-school badminton tournament.

While we paused for a moment to admire her zeal, she surprised us by adding more to her growing list of hobbies. Turns out, Shrawni is also a trained kathak dancer and a classical singer. And now she’s learning French.

We asked her how she manages time for her studies and extracurricular activities. “I plan my day every morning and work accordingly. I list out the days I have badminton practice or Kathak classes and adjust my study timetable accordingly.  Sometimes, my mom helps me with my studies and together we solve math problems,” she says, with a dash of confidence.

Balancing life with BYJU’S

Studying in 10th grade from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Indore, Shrawni knows with absolute conviction what she wants to pursue after her 12th.“I want to do mechanical engineering and then join the Indian Navy,” she says, beaming with pride.

Mind you, Shrawni has already begun her preparations. Her focus is on math and science and she wants to get her core concepts right. Shrwani stumbled upon the BYJU’S app while she was looking for a personalised learning aid for these subjects. The app is a perfect mix of fun animations and live examples and this works for her. The app allows her to understand the basic concepts at her own pace and balance her time well. “BYJU’S helps me stay up-to-date with my concepts through video lessons. Whenever I have any doubt, I quickly watch the video lesson on that topic and resolve my doubts.”

With such remarkable versatility and her undying love for books, sports and dance, Shrawni is setting a benchmark for her peers. Her story inspires everyone to be determined and to keep the learning spirit on!

A special thanks to Shrawni’s parents and her mentor Raksha Chettri for being her pillars of strength and helping her reach the stars.
