    Aradhana Elizabeth Ratnam

    from New Delhi


Hello. My name is Aradhana, and I've been granted admission in ArtEZ, an art school in the Netherlands.

In order to be able to pay my tuition fee in time I need your help.

I've loved to paint, draw and make things with my hands for as long as I can remember. It gives me a great sense of fulfillment and joy to create art.

As with most cases, a big part of growing up and entering the real world meant giving up interests in order to sustain my family financially. So, I took to studying economics in Delhi University.  Being in an intensive course, I was unable to do anything besides college work for the next few years, which took a toll on me. Because of constant worry about a financially secure future I had to give up offers from art and design schools that I kept applying to year after year, hoping for some respite.

In 2014, I was granted admission in School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA.

In 2015 and 2016, both, I was granted admission in NIFT, India.

In 2017, I was granted admission in Florence Institute of Design International, Italy.

Despite my family's support, I could not take up these admission offers due to lack of finances.

This year, after being denied several loans due to insufficient savings, income and lack of assets, I decided to start this campaign to receive help in raising funds for this course.

To pursue this 4-year long course, my tuition fee for the first year is round-about 8600€ and then 11000€ for the next 3 years i.e. 41600€ , which equals to 36,53,167.45 INR approximately. On top of that, I have to show the immigration office that I have 11000€ in my bank account every year for living expenses, after paying my fee, as financial guarantee.

With this campaign I hope to cover at least my tuition fee of 36 lakh. I plan to work alongside my studies in order to cover up my living expenses, which will be another additional 35-40 lakh.

Thank you for your kindness in helping me in my journey.
