Monica Lamba

Monica took admission to Miranda House College aiming to be a graduate in Botany but by the end of her three years of graduation, she was much more than just a graduate. She became aware of the misfortunes of certain sections of society through personal experience. Willing to pursue higher education, she chose forensic science (at NICFS) as her subject in post-graduation. For her dissertation, she went to collect samples in rural schools and realized that the staff was doing their best with the resources they had but wondered why the resources were limited. After post-graduation, she worked in Forensic Science Laboratory, Delhi for two years at the post of Scientific Assistant in Biology Division.
