She interacted with the students and gave some snippets of her long journey and the tribulations that she went through. She gave all credit for her achievements to her parents and coach Mr. Nandi. “While hard work is important, it is necessary that there be someone to guide you along the way,” she said. She mentioned the Commonwealth Medal as her most memorable moment, in response to a question from a student.
Speaking on this occassion, Mr. Ryan Pinto, CEO, Ryan International Group of Institutions, said, “It was wonderful to have Dipa with us and interact with our young Ryanites. The children were inspired by her journey. When high achievers like Dipa speak directly to the children it has a strong impact, which they carry for life. We pray to Lord Jesus to take Dipa to greater heights and continue to bring laurels to the nation.”
