Story

Dear all,

Thank you all of you for your time and for listening to my story. Thank you for helping me achieve my dream to attend college. I am a hard working student, I have obtained great grades in my 12th Board exams and I have maintained it with achievements in football as well, a sport that I love. I have represented my state in football competitions and emerged victorious. This year after a long research process into scholarships, universities and numerous applications, I was accepted into a premier university- University of Rome Tor Vergata. The economics program offered by the university holds the top spot nationally and 80th worldwide.The school is particularly strong in the field of financial economics and is considered one of top 10 universities for economics in the world (further details can be verified on their Wikipedia page). I sincerely hope you will consider helping me fund my education.

I am the youngest child in a family of three kids and my mother has constantly done her utmost to ensure we had the best amenities in life to get good education. She is a single mother and though I would not bore you with details but I hope you can understand the burdens of being a single mom. Despite all the hardships in life, she still managed to give us the best of what she could. My siblings and I are very close in age , which means that both of them are currently studying as well. Even as a young child, I was used to taking care of my own self as my mother was hardly ever home. This helped me to become independent at an early age and I viewed it as a valuable lesson in life which came through certain hardships. Even though it was really hard to fend for myself in school and life with no one to fallback upon, it certainly helped me to learn a lot about myself and what I could do. It is one of the traits that I truly value now.

When I was young, I used to watch a lot of anime. One of them, an anime called Hungry Heart changed me in ways that I could never have imagined them. As a lonely child, relying on anime, music and books helped me survive. Hungry Heart was an anime about football and I could relate so much to the main character in the anime who used to channel his frustrations and dreams into playing football. This sparked my love for the game and whenever I felt that life became too much, I would channelize it into playing football. This led me to represent my state at a senior state level competition and also nationally in the tournament organized by ISC board. I also represented my city in regional level and won the first prize.

I was advised by others to consider applying to Europe as I could continue my studies and also pursue my love for the game. By the time I entered into class 12th, my siblings were able to guide me with my applications and life was more stable than it had ever been, For two whole years (classes 11th and 12th), I undertook to excel in my studies and also not to let go of football to ensure that I would be able to avail of the opportunity to study in Europe should I be fortunate enough to be selected for the same. After my board exams, I diligently applied myself to researching about colleges, completing application forms, applying for scholarships. Imagine my happiness and boundless joy when I received the message that I had been accepted into one of my dream universities and that too in Italy with full scholarship which would cover my tuition fee.

However, that's when I realized since my mother was already funding the education of siblings, she would never be able to afford the living expenses, visa cost and all other expenses that come attached with sending a child abroad. Currently, as things stand my mother would not be able to fund my education in any way until one of my siblings starts earning which will still take some time yet. I have worked really really hard and whenever I was studying or applying, I always did it with my dream in my mind. I do not know if believing in something so strongly works but I was confident that I would get a scholarship and be admitted to one of my dream colleges. However, the college is unable to cover my living expenses and I really need at least 10,00,000 rupees to fund my education.

University of Rome Tor Vergata has one of the best economics programs in the world and it is everything that I have ever dreamed about. I really want to give my best and work really hard so that I may become a person that my mother would be proud of and to ensure that she never again has to go through so many hardships as she has gone through till now in her life. I really want to achieve my dream so that I can help my mom, my siblings and to never compromise with the 10 year old me that found comfort in an old anime show.

I truly thank you for reading my story and for listening to my dreams and if you consider investing in the same, I thank you. It would mean the world to me to fulfill that dream and would always appreciate it. So would my mother.

Warm regards,
Atreya
