Ruchi is a very positive and committed woman and believes that Sankalp is more than world for her. She has got continued help, support and motivation from her parents, therefore she gives a lot of credit to them for what she has been able to achieve in her life. The environment at the centre fills her up with immense energy and she is deeply satisfied with the work she has been doing through Sankalp. Her intention through Sankalp is to push for early intervention. For this to begin with, developmental screening of the kid in early years must become as common as vaccinations, so that disability is screened at the right time as this would be beneficial for the family and the individual to get the right direction in the beginning itself. She looks forward to create support systems at mainstream colleges and schools for the disabled, in the coming future. Ruchi loves going for long drive, listening and singing music, and is always very eager on expanding her knowledge base.
