For me my Academy,RCA, is not only my most ambitious project so far but also a piece of my heart. I have shared it before why I have this penchant to give it my best. I faced no hiccups in starting it and the love I have got in return has overwhelmed me. My doors are open for six to sixty years old and it gives me immense satisfaction if I am able to aid them bridge the gap between their intellect and expression. While generally I like to groom kids in batches and adults individually, due to the pressing time issues, sometimes I break the norm if someone is really worthy of it. I know what it means to get the right direction at the right age.

No, no dears, this post is not about bragging about what I do for them but to share about how grooming them leaves me an ounce more enriched each time. Though each of my student irrespective of their age is equally special to me, there is an adorable little wonder who became my favourite from the day I have known her and who forced me to bend all rules. Yes, she is a little precious angel, my nine year old student Siyona. She is a gifted writer and I was surprised to read her creations during the first class. Her mom has assessed her talent brilliantly and has entrusted me the task of honing her skills. I understood I had to take her one on one for she was undoubtedly worth the efforts

Gradually, spending that one hour of the day with her became the most precious time for me. You know good teachers need good students as much as good students need good teachers. We are alike in a lot of things and are almost like friends. She brought out the best in me. In my desire to give her nothing short of the best, I not only taught her to my ability best but studied various new forms to polish her talents and she grasped them equally well. Her favorite genre is mystery and she masters the art of created extra-terrestrial fictional characters with impeccable nomenclature. Till I met her this was the only genre which repelled me and she hated writing emotional pieces which is my forte but spending a lot of time with each other, I guess not only gave us a good understanding of each other’s genre but also a deep understanding of how a writer should think beyond his comfort zone.

I challenged her in every session with various assignments and she religiously wrote as if my wish was her command. She is my smiling doll in whom I see my own reflection, a real sweet human being, who keeps imagining stories, talking to herself and laughing aloud on her thoughts. I love the way she likes integrating science and her doodling in her stories. Yeah, she is mostly a fiction writer but when she does write non fiction she surprises me with articles like her understanding of ‘Positive and Negative Perfections’ which made me believe she is ready to be a blogger and so I gifted her a blog, few months ago. Yes, she had started blogging at the age of 9. Actually, she has also starting her first book. Teaching her the nuances inflates my heart with pride. What binds us the most is that we both are weird moody writers who can do wonders with our pen if we are on the right zone and can otherwise can just exist meaninglessly for hours. Since we both know it, we are pretty cool together. I wish every teacher gets to groom such diamonds.

She is my little heart and very recently we have to part ways but the little precious made a beautiful book mark for me which I use everyday and also miss her everyday. May our paths cross you again Siyu, I love you loads♥️
