Set your goals and Know where to go

Tehneez Bashir has topped in the recently declared XII results in Commerce stream. Aspiring to be a businesswoman, Tehneez has never gone for private tuitions, nor does she believe in late night studies. In her childhood, Tehneez wanted to be a teacher, but now she only dreams of establishing a successful business. “Rather than working for somebody’s dreams I want to work for my own,” she says. Her father, who dealt in Kashmir arts, passed away when she was in 3rd standard. It was a big setback, which she overcame with support from her mother and her elder sister, who takes care of the family financially. Tehneez wants to follow her father’s footsteps and establish a shopping mall, preferably outside the state. But first she has to complete her studies. Business Studies and Entrepreneurship are her favourite subjects, and she wants to pursue Chartered Accountancy after her graduation. She likes to read books in her free time, though she doesn’t call herself an avid reader. Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet is her favorite. Currently she is reading Lateral Thinking by Edward De Bono. Though she followed an eight hour study time table while preparing for examinations, she doesn’t believe in confining herself to studies. “I used to watch TV, and help with chores at home during exams to reduce stress,” she said. “When you have set your goals, you know where to go and where not to.” Reading books, watching business news, listening to music, and watching cartoon network are her hobbies. Cartoon programs Oggy and the Cockroach, and the movie PK are her favourites. She is also an active participant of games at school, and plays badminton and kho kho. “I believe in enjoying life, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (you wont get a second life). Live Life to the fullest.” Above all, she believes in honesty. “Money can’t buy everything, character is the most important thing.” She considers her achievement just a beginning “It is like rungs of a ladder, there are many more things to come. One should be down to earth, not egotist.”
