    Anmol Soni

    from Delhi


Hello, my name is Anmol Soni and I am from New Delhi, India. I have recently completed my graduation from Shri Ram College of Commerce, University of Delhi. In the month of March, this year, I was selected by Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva, Switzerland for the Master in International Affairs course. In order to be able to pursue this course of my dreams, I will have to shell out a minimum amount of CHF 52,000 (approximately INR 35 Lakhs) to study and live in Geneva. Geneva has been ranked as the second most expensive city in Europe. I hail from an extremely modest and middle class family. My father is the only earning member in our family of four members. Thus it is very difficult for him to support my studies abroad. I am however a man of dreams and I know that with hard work, determination and kind support, I will be able to achieve them. My dream is to be able to do something great for my country. My very admission offer is a testament to my interests and my passion of studying International Affairs so that one day I can work as a policy analyst in my country.  

I have an excellent result throughout my educational career and I received Pitamber& T.C. Bhatia scholarship in 2011-12 for securing 100% in Mathematics in Class12th CBSE board exam. I have also been awarded merit certificate by CBSE board for being among the top 0.1 % of candidates in the Senior Secondary examination. Very recently, I have completed my internship with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India.
In order to be able to do the course, I have decided to start this crowd funding in an earnest attempt to contribute to my study expenses. My family has sacrificed a lot to cover part of the costs but a major part still has to be raised. I have decided to raise INR 10 Lakhs through a sustained crowd funding campaign in order to cover some part of the tuition fees, living expenses etc. The average monthly cost of living expenses in Geneva is around CHF 1800 or approximately INR 1,20,000. I have also decided to take an Education loan for the remaining expenses.
Now coming to the question- 'Why should I fund you?' I just have one answer. I am not looking for easy money or shirking away from my own responsibilities. I have worked day and night to achieve my dream of studying Master in International Affairs from a well-known academic institution. However, lack of financial aid has put a serious question to months of my toil and hard work and I have decided to rise above my situation. With your humble and kind support, you will invest in my future. Hence, I am humbly asking you to help me in any small way you can and pave the way for me to undertake this course of my dreams.
