There are very few children who are exceptionally gifted in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership capacity, or certain academic fields. 14-year-old multi-talented Tisya Singh is one such child and rightfully leads as our Brand Ambassador.
Every child is unique. Each one of them is gifted and talented in a particular area. Comparing them as a collective is very unfair. Every single one also has different challenges. For some children, the classroom setting is the place where their talent is the hardest to exhibit. Also, that is the same place where the challenges are easily visible. And our education system forces them to spend so much time in the classroom that it gets tough for these little guys.
But, then there are a few children who are outstanding in every field and are exceptionally gifted. They give evidence of excessive-performance capability in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership capacity, or certain academic fields. Tisya Singh, a 14-year-old girl from DPS, Bangalore (East) is one such girl. At an age where the kids are busy with their phones and friends, Tisya already has so many achievements to her name. Her role model is her dad. He is very hard-working and efficiently balances his personal and professional life. He drives her to her classes and helps her with her studies. She wants to make him proud and strives to be like him, someday. She has a disciplined schedule. The weekdays are usually all about school and assignments. But, during the weekends she has a very busy routine which includes her Kung Fu training, guitar/keyboard lessons, and dance classes which usually stretch for 5-7 hours.
Tisya has secured an A1 grade in all academic years in school to date. She has been ranked as the top performer for multiple academic years. Tisya is a member of her school choir.

The higher the kids are on the academic ladder, the harder it gets for them. They find it difficult to give time to things like reading, writing, painting, and dancing. Textbooks take up all their time and most of them lose out on sleep in a rush to do everything as expected by their parents. Tisya will be an inspiration for the kids of this generation. The way she manages her academics along with the other fields is praiseworthy. The kids of this generation need to find a balance between their needs and wanting to survive the demand in the coming years of the 21st century.
