Yash Mittal, from Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, finished his schooling from Kiddy’s Corner Higher Secondary School and has been trained by the IDIA Madhya Pradesh Chapter since December 2015.
In his 18 years, Yash has learned the value of hope and determination in challenging and difficult circumstances. His father, who owns a small shop, manages to earn between INR 65,000 – 70,000 per annum and is the sole breadwinner in the family. With limited means to support his educational needs, Yash has worked hard to achieve academic success and has secured admission at Institute of Law, Nirma University.
Yash is also interested in the Indian political landscape and political processes. He is an avid reader, and also enjoys playing sports like badminton, cricket and basketball. While recognizing the immense value of access to education in institutions known for excellence, Yash also realizes the important role each individual plays in shaping these institutions. He has immersed himself in university life, noting, “It’s not only the institutions that make individuals; it’s also the individuals who make institutions.”
Yash aims to use his education to serve society. “I opted for law because it helps me relate to society, since law is everywhere. If I know law, and if I’m following it, then I don’t have to be afraid of it,” he says.
