Since she is new to the United Theological College, Bangalore as a lecturer and comes from a Roman Catholic background as a Religious Sister she wanted to commit herself fully to learn things in a proper way, with a clear understanding of all the activities of the college. Because of that she did not take up any other activities outside the college. Her sincere gratitude goes to the principal, faculty colleagues and the students for their constant support for helping her in all the areas of her life in UTC.
