Rinju Kumari hails from Behaeting Tea Estate, Dibrugarh, Assam. Her father is a teacher in a primary school of Beheating Tea Estate, and her mother is a social worker. Her father’s monthly income of INR 9000 is the only source of family income which is hardly enough to fuel her dreams of pursuing higher education. Rinju has put up with great hardships to pursue her higher secondary studies and has had to travel 30 kms everyday just to attend school. Rinju Kumari is a determined and hardworking girl and her dream is to become a law professor.
Rinju got in touch with IDIA when our North East team conducted a sensitization session at Salt Brook School, Dibrugarh, Assam and selected her through INAT.
She cleared the Calcutta University Law entrance exam in 2013 and secured admission at South Calcutta Law College, Kolkata. She performed extremely well in college and was the university topper in 2014! We firmly believe that Rinju has a very bright future ahead of her.
