Hi, I'm Ranjana Pandey,a student leader with less resources but a lot of ambitions and dreams and would like to become a role model for the girls in my community. 

I'm 17 years old, and I'm working towards getting into the field of business. I have completed my primary education (till class 10) at a Municipality school in Mumbai. My family is originally from UP but we have been staying in Mumbai all my life. My father is a taxi driver and earns a daily wage to support me and my 2 siblings so that we can get a good education. We have home rent, education loans, and several other financial liabilities due to which I have worked towards getting a scholarship for my own studies.

Post 10th standard, I received a scholarship to pursue secondary education (till class 12) & higher studies. Working towards my goal of getting into one of India's top colleges for an MBA, I am about to start my first year of BMS (Bachelors in Management Studies) at SIES college in Mumbai.

As a recipient of an EY (Ernst & Young) scholarship, I am able to pay for my college fees, transportation, and other ancillary expenses. But unfortunately, this does not cover any technical items that I would need for college and internships.

I am looking to purchase a laptop for the following reasons:
  1. College assignments, class work, and extracurriculars.
  2. I need to master the tools like Microsoft Excel & Powerpoint.
  3. The laptop will help me to get more internship opportunities and hence good experience, as a laptop is a must now in every sector!
  4. Given my family background, I am not able to buy a laptop myself. My father earns a daily wage and between house rent, my sibling's education loans, and other family responsibilities, it is extremely difficult for them to support me financially by getting a laptop.
My classes for the first year of BMS will be starting soon and I would really like to purchase my laptop before college begins.

Here are the specifications of the laptop I am considering purchasing since it would best fit my needs:
  • A decent processor
  • 8GB RAM/512GB SSD
  • Windows 11
  • Backlit Keyboard
  • MS Office Suite
  • Light-weight
  • A decent battery
After doing research and talking with some people in that field, HP 14s, AMD Ryzen 5-5500U was a decent laptop. I would get an extended warranty, laptop bag, and accessories (mouse, keypad, etc.) with the remaining amount. But any amount raised towards this cause will be extremely helpful for me and will be spent cautiously.

I really appreciate your support in helping me achieve my dreams. I strongly believe that every child deserves equal opportunity and thank you for believing in me.
