Help Arunima Attend Her Dream Educational Program


I'm Arunima Sen, a high-school student from India. I'm currently an 11th grader from Bangalore.  I aspire to pursue engineering after I graduate from highschool.

To come to the main thing for which I'm writing this, my father is a patient of chronic depression and hasn't been able to attend office regularly for the last few years. Along with depression, he met with an accident due to which he got diagnosed with spondylitis and slip disc which further proved a hindrance to him for attending office. 

We are making our ends meet from a meagre amount of monetary loan received from my father's office. My mother was a contractual teacher whose contract ended back in March. I also have an elder autistic sibling who is undergoing expensive treatments and medications. 

I got accepted into a summer program called the "WYSE: Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering" conducted by the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign for the Mechanical Engineering Program. I'm really very interested in attending this wonderful program because I want to become an engineer someday soon. 

The summer camp is very significant and will develop in me valuable skills that will be vital for achieving success. The only problem is that I cannot afford this program. Given a chance, I'd definitely attend the program. 

Recently, I had been selected as a Junior Researcher at the Junior Academy of the New York Academy of Sciences. Over 8 months, I worked on 2 projects, namely Determining Micronutrient Deficiency using Spectrophotometry and a Solar Hybrid Bus which had the latest forms of technology embedded in it to make the world a better living place. 

My second project had been selected for the final rounds for which I received a travel scholarship and visited New York city the last week. At the event there, Nobel Laureates, CEOs and Eminent Scientists who had presided over were very impressed by our project. Particularly, Mrs Indra Nooyi CEO of PepsiCo complimented us for our project. Back in India, many people felt proud of me as I had represented India at a Global Platform.

I promise to repay the debt one day when I'm established on my own feet to the needy ones like me then. I'd be highly grateful if you can contribute some part towards helping me to achieve this dream.

Thank you.

Warmest regards,
Arunima Sen
