She grew up in the slums of Borabanda, lost her father at an early age and her mother is a daily wage earner.

Yet, D. Pallavi is resolute to make a success of her life and the 16-year-old says she found an apt guide in the form of Andhra Pradesh Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions (APSWREI) Society.

On Friday, Pallavi who is studying senior intermediate in the AP Social Welfare Residential Junior College, Mahendra Hills, made her debut on television presenting a lecture on ‘Sound’ on Mana TV.

In an effortless fashion and using various teaching aids, she presented various aspects of waves, oscillation, frequency and so on to explain the subject.

Get paid Rs. 1,000

The initiative happens to be first of the ‘Earn while you learn-super student Mana TV lecture’ concept that has been mooted by R. S. Praveen Kumar, Secretary, APSWREI Society.

The idea is to have selecte students from the society’s 291 schools and colleges take up the role of a teacher and get paid Rs.1,000.

“My early childhood hardly offered any hope but my joining the APSWREI hostel six years ago changed the course,” says Pallavi.

“It involved lot of hard work and also encouragement from staff and faculty without, which I could not have dreamt of facing the camera and going live with a lecture on subject like wave motions,” she beams.

Mr. Praveen Kumar says, “We thought why not promote students into teaching and use Mana TV network for the purpose, and then we started scouting for talented students,” he says.

Through a series of filtering, a total of 50 APSWREI students were narrowed down and they will be going live with lectures on different subjects on Mana TV.

“There is a severe shortage of quality teachers in many places. We tapped our best faculty to train and spend time with these selected students who in turn are teaching other students through television,” he says.
