Chitransh, a Class 12 student at the Delhi Government's School of Excellence (SoE), Khichripur, spends her days implementing marketing tactics for her made-to-order painting company and her evenings finishing her schoolwork. She claims that her demanding schedule has helped her become more productive and has shaped her personality.
