Story

I have been selected to study Childhood Studies at the University of Sussex, UK.

I am raising fund here for my higher studies.

Born and raised in middle class family, was a science student in a school. Life was pretty okay until my father met with paralytic attack due to brain hemorrhage. At first I could not understand much as to what's happening , but eventually life started changing and my family started facing financial crunch, but somehow we were surviving the situation. I started taking private tuition and doing part-time jobs. Somehow things were quite under control but my dream to become doctor was shattered by then. Nonetheless, I strived and completed my graduation. I got married and blessed with a daughter and started working as a teacher in one of the private schools but destiny had some other plans. My marriage did not work out and I came out of my marriage. I was losing hopes and started feeling weak but then I decided to rediscover myself. I gathered courage and confidence to build up my life and decided to pursue studies again. I completed my second graduation (Bachelor of Education) last year from Kurukshetra University. Now I do not want to stop here to achieve what I aspire to be and my parent's financial condition is still not allowing me to fulfill my pending dreams.

The hardships I faced during my adolescence due to my father’s illness and my failed marriage taught me to be more resourceful, enhanced my problem-solving skills, made me more resilient and flexible, compassionate, sensitive and modest. These personal experiences in my life and my experience working for children for the past nine years gave me enough motivation to do my masters in childhood studies.

Why do you fund me?
Having an in-depth years of experience working with children for the last nine years, I have learnt that it is not just about nurturing and caring for children that excites me but what makes me happier, satisfied and excited is to see them learn and do well in life. With your support, I can pursue my higher studies and become a role model for my daughter and give a better future to her and other children of the country. Your support will empower me to fight against all odds and set an example for other women who are still hesitant to come out of their fears due to societal norms and expectations.

I request you to support me in my studies to become advocate for childhood policies with your generous donation.

Please share this with your friends and families.
