She was the first one to receive a religious vocation from her family. Her desire to become a religious came in her when she was an eighth grader. As she completed her high school she met with Fr.Thomas Vadakekary, her neighbour, the then parish priest of Pithora and expressed her desire to become a missionary. Few days later, to her joy and surprise she learned that there were also some of her classmates, now our Srs.Archana, Francina, Deepthi and Anupa who came up with the same desire to be missionaries. Fr.Thomas gladly introduced them to the Medical Sisters and the need for missionaries in north India. Sister remembers that they had no patience to wait.
