About Me

Hi! I am Paarth Jha, a student from Jaipur, in 11th standard, PCM.
So the first time I heard about coding, was the time I knew immediately that this is my thing. I used to sit 3-4 hours on my PC everyday, just coding around, making softwares that make no sense, but the mere though of coding motivated me. Artificial Intelligence is my first love. I watch AI videos, read AI articles, everyday. This love kept growing more and more. And I love to watch cricket and play guitar. I've been playing guitar since I was in 5th class; yep that's six years. Also, I love science. Here's a pic of all the certificates I have:



Among all these, 5 certificates are for Science Olympiads, 2 for Mathematics, and rest for participation and other school stuff. But the most precious one I have is this:



I received this when I secured AIR 83 in National Creativity Olympiad, in 6th standard. I've been a science guy since then.

Reason

Life happened. My father died in 2008 and since then my Mom has been working so our family can survive. My sister, older than me is currently seeking job in Delhi and I'm studying in 11th. We used to live in Ajmer, but I had to move to Jaipur, so I can pursue my goal of JEE, along with SAT. I'm studying in Allen Career Institute. My mom had to take a lot of loans for me and my sister's education. Her school, college, now my school and college after 2 years. Mom hasn't been able to fully pay back any of these loans. And since she's earning about Rs. 25,000 every month, after taxes, bills, loans and everything, our family of three is left with only Rs. 10,000. And that's the only source of income in our family. And because I want to study abroad, I need every bit of support you can give me. Yes, I am studying for JEE but I want to study abroad.
For the past few days I've been thinking it. I read a story about an Indian boy, from Kanpur who cleared the tough admitting process and received full scholarship into Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I read his story so many times that I can recite it now.
MIT? That's the dream college. My goal is to study Computer Science and Robotics Engineering (because of interest) and hopefully do a startup in this field. But the fees of these universities is a number that does not appear, even in my dreams. Even if I get full financial aid, my family would not be able to afford me living abroad.

Utilisation

All the funds that I receive will all be used for my education only. Fees for coaching next year, I'll apply for Yale Young Global Scholars Program so for that too, and if enough, then for my college education later.

Your support is all I need

I can't just sit here and watch my mother take loans she knows she won't be able to pay back. My effort will be a million percent, my priorities are sorted, and I'm ready. But the only thing I need now, is your support. I can't do this all by myself.

Contact

I don't have a personal phone, and I don't use Facebook. But here's my email:

I need help. All the help you can give me. Education is the greatest power that mankind has, but some of us can't afford it. As we all know, "With great power, comes great responsibility", it is our responsibility to share this power with everyone, so there's no human left on Earth who can not change the world, reach infinity, and beyond.
