About Janhavi Panwar
Janwari Panwar was born in Samalkhar, Haryana and her father is a primary school teacher and her mother is a housewife. Even though her father is a teacher, he wasn’t fluent in English and the teacher at her primary and secondary school also faced the same problem. Seeing her passion to master English, her father was passionate to help her learn the language even though their resources were limited. Initially, he brought her BBC videos to practice her English with and this helped her learn the British accent and intonation. He also enrolled her in the different UK and US English speaking courses and also went to embassies to help her learn more about the language. Since the minimum age of admission was 16 years, the father-daughter duo found a linguist, Rekha Raj who helped her.
Her father revealed in an interview, even when she was a bit older than a year she mastered a vocabulary of approximately 550 words in English.
“As busy as most of us are, it is important to give our children the time they deserve. It doesn’t matter if they are academically bright or not, believe in them and support them in their dreams,” Janhavi’s father stated in an interview.
