Saifullah Said about his struggle in life when he was in class 11th he faced depression and faced mental health issues. Let tell him by himself his life story:

“You are not going to achieve anything.”
“You should open a general store because you are good for nothing.”
“You are a disgrace to us.”
I was always the victim of above-written lines of few people. Yes, you heard that right. Before throwing light on it let me tell you about myself.
As a kid, I was a strong introvert. I got really afraid of almost talking to anyone. I had a very limited social circle. Overall I was a hugely timid personality. Academically also, I was an average guy. But despite all this life was going smooth.
The nightmare finally started with my admission into Jamia School in IX Class. I felt overwhelmingly homesick and couldn’t adjust. This resulted in 3 years of lavish school loss. I went into severe depression at that time. Everyone lost hope in me. I disconnected myself from everyone. My mind started producing suicidal thoughts. But, gradually, with the help of my family and inbuilt courage I was able to get out of it.
That phase taught me a lot of things. After that, I completely transformed myself. I decided not to look back and started focusing on my career. I came back to Sambhal and took admission here in B.V.M. Sr. Sec. School and performed well academically. I became Head Boy of the school in XII Class. Later, I emerged as a CBSE board school topper.
Life has changed completely until then. Post it, I took admission in Sri Venkateswara College of Delhi University (DU) in the commerce stream. I got exposure to completely new things and learned a lot here. The cosmopolitan culture of the college helped me a lot to improve my personality.
At the end of the College, I got placed in a very good company. But then there were a lot of dilemmas as the offer was genuinely good and I could have financially supported my family. On the other hand, I always had this dream of becoming an IAS officer. Therefore, I finally decided to sacrifice the job to pursue my dream.
Then, I started the preparation of Civil Services along with it I also enrolled myself in Faculty of Law, DU.
Finally, the journey of UPSC started which was another roller coaster ride. Managing two things was never an easy task including the already added mental pressure of Civil Services. But as I had learned from my past experiences, I never lost hope and courage and was adamant to be positive. I tried to sail through this journey with this attitude and became more resilient.
“August 4 2020 – My final results of Civil Services got declared and I secured All INDIA 623rd Rank in the very first attempt.”
This was one of the best days of my life. All the struggles and difficulties proved to be worthy.
“You have made us proud. You are a Star.”
“You are an inspiration to everyone.”
These words were said by the same people who demotivated me in the past
So, I learned from my experiences that always believe in yourself.
“Work hard in silence, let success make the noise.”
