EXPECTED GRADUATION: TBD

Our Mugavari Student G. Banupriya has completed her second year B.E in Computer Science at Kongu Engineering College, Erode.

She is a native of Komarapalayam in Namakkal District. Her parents are weavers who make minimum wages in a textile company. Due to her poor family background, she was not able to study in a government school; as a result, she worked as a child laborer. Seeing this is illegal, when the government found out, she was immediately put in a school. Even in the labor department, she was exceptional, with her rank being District First and State Second. Upon seeing this, Tamil Nadu Govt Labor Department Commissioner Mrs.Amudha IAS encouraged her.

Banupriya’s academic performance is stellar and she is the first person in her family to go to college.
